  • Grading required for access to the site along designated access roads and trails.
  • Planting of seedlings at Gob Sites A2S and A7, including planting hole amendments, seedling protection tubes where required, and maintenance and protection of plantings for six months.
  • Reclamation of specified access roads by installation of waterbars, and crusher fines paving where indicated.
  • Hydroseeding using an extended-term flexible growth medium at designated areas and areas disturbed by construction.
