Second Appeal Summary
PA ID# 000-UH96N-00; East Bay Regional Park District
DSR ID# 3571; Slope Repair
Citation: FEMA-1628-DR-CA; East Bay Regional Park District (Applicant)
Landslides; Improved project; Hazard mitigation
Severe storms from December 17, 2005, to January 3, 2006, resulted in the failure of a slope in Alvarado Park. FEMA prepared PW 3571 to fund a geotechnical study to develop a recommendation for repair of the facility. The Applicant requested $256,484 to construct a wall at mid-slope, including $24,300 for hazard mitigation along the creek. FEMA concluded that the Applicants requested scope of work exceeded that which was necessary to repair the slope to its pre-disaster condition, and that a wall 50 feet long should be constructed along the top of the slope. FEMA prepared PW 3571 for an estimated total project cost of $63,382, which included the geotechnical study, a soldier pile wall along the top of the slope, and a guardrail adjacent to the wall. The hazard mitigation measure was denied in the first appeal. In the second appeal the Applicant is requesting $256,058 for a soldier pile wall at mid-slope and crib wall and installation of a culvert and rip rap as a hazard mitigation measure along the creek.
Is the Applicants proposed scope of work necessary to restore the facility to its pre-disaster function and capacity?
