Dirt berms, retention pond, reseeding/mulch, jutemat & straw bales used. 70% revegetative cover has been achieved. BMPs installed 9/30/93 NO Site re-evaluated to reflect current status of site. The original assessment was completed on 05/14/1997 (17.5 score) and did not include the northern back area. NMED was copied on original assessment 3/13/1998. 00-017 67.5 12/7/1998 YES NO NO YES A long section of waste line under parking lot north of LAMC main building. Waste line also proceeds south down into and across LA Canyon (Line 167). The LAMC portion is covered with asphalt (ongoing construction). The canyon crossing portion was removed and the area consists of volcanic tuff and loose rock on the steeper slopes and moderate vegetation at the canyon bottom. Flat lying area for near LAMC. Steeper cliffs on canyon sides. YES NO Runoff collects in area storm drains at LAMC, this portion is sub-surface and is not impacted by runoff. The canyon portion has evidence of normal runoff conditions along canyon slopes. Runoff terminates into LA Canyon on the Line 167 portion of the PRS. None observed. The terrain appears to be draining naturally with little or no sediment migration. YES Parking lot/building roof drains create run-on to area, although PRS is sub-surface. NO YES Natural run-on is occurring on both canyon slopes along PRS boundary. Veenis, Steve NO The PRS has two locations of concern. The LAMC and Line 167 portions. This assessment reflects the Line 167 portion which is considered to be "worst case". LAMC portion of site is currently disturbed due to temporary construction project. Site will be re-paved with asphalt when complete. The Line 167 portion has been removed and appears to have retained its natural condition and is stable.

Outfall from septic discharges over mesa's edge into steeper drainage channel below site. YES YES Outfall previously had discharged at mesa edge, evidence of discharge into natural drainage channel below site. Retention area near access road Runoff appears to terminate in depression area located south of access road. The road acts as a dam which prevents runoff from entering into canyon located approximately 50' north of road. Sediments within channel are being deposited in a variety of locations. Visible erosion is hard to see but can be inferred. NO NO YES Sheet flow from slope above site. Steve Veenis NO This site was re-evaluated to include the septic outfall and the associated discharges into the drainage below the site. The original assessment performed on 8/5/97, included only the septic tank. Since the access road terminates all local runoff, no additional BMPs are recommended. 00-030(i) 54.5 6/25/1999 NO YES NO NO Septic formerly located on bench with outfall on cliff edge.
