possible dump site
Erosion on RR side of trail - need to make sure trench is open on hillside. Also may want to add dirt on RR side of trail to keep water from running over hillside further eroding the hillside. Hillside eroded to 2 1/2 feet of blacktop trail surface

135.74148+90137.24pipe/fencepla smo18Pipe Open - pipe has been dug out, will need to return and remove more slide. Slide material is up against hillside and will be washed into pipe with heavy rainfall.
Has two gasline posts in the drainage ditch.
River side of hill appears to have a bench about 40 feet down, may be okay to dump fill.
7/4 dig to about 1 foot below trail elevation on west side.
7/6 dug to about two feet below trail elevation on east side, found the pipe.
7/11 dug one foot below bottom of pipe to allow for from steep sides
7/16 cleared swale on side of gasline pilings away from pipe
This is one of most significant basins that needs to be dug out between pipe and hillside. High Priority Drainage Area.

135.81slide - Vahosky CrossSlide originates here, turns west for 69 feet before entereing inlet
135.82144+85inlet/Pipe Large drainage area with the grate. Two pipes about 30 feet apart one completely covered, 1 inlet, no fence. Covered pipe is deep - perhaps 4 to 6 feet below trail. Was this pipe opened during initial trail project? Large multiple basin area - needs cleaned out. High Priority Drain System.

135.94138+65137.44Pipe/slide-0.01pla smo27The big dig. Top of pipe was located about 5 ft below trail elevation. Originally the fill surface was about 3 feet above trail elevation.
We had dug down about 5 feet below trail elevation to the top ofthe drain pipe. Bottom of drain pipe is about 7 1/2 feet below trail.
About 6/20 a storm came and filled in to about 1 foot below trail elevation.

136.35116+12137.80pipe/fencepla smo12Pipe Open - little debris in pipe. Narrow steep hillside - probably requires backhoe.
136.40113+25137.93pipe/fencemtl rib9Old metal pipe. basin needs work. Cannot find RR end of pipe - apparently buried on RR hillside. Some debris in pipe - can see far into pipe with some light at end of drain. Pipe needs Flushed.

136.47110+01137.94pipe/fencevertical steel with slotsMystery Drain - two pipes on RR hillside, 6" and 9" in diameter and about 12 feet apart. On hillside drain area there is an upright large pipe with slits on the side. Bottom of pipe is full of dirt. Does this pipe lead to drain pipe - it is in middle of apparent basin. There also is a eroded hole going down into basin - water may be going into this hole and some how going into a drain pipe. High Priority Drain System. CAUTION: FOUND 16 INCH GAS LINE CLOSE TO FENCE - NOT UNDER TRAIL BUT IN DRAINAGE HOLE CLOSE TO FENCE ABOUT TWO TO THREE FEET DEEP.
136.54106+07138.03pipe/fencepla rib12Pipe Open - dam has been built in basin keeping most of slide material out of drain pipe. Corregated pipe with some debris in pipe. Pipe needs Flushed.
