The prime contract for this project called for the installation of 100 feet of steel sheetpile wall, repairs to the floodwall concrete pile cap, embankment slide repairs, and repair of a stormwater outfall. Yerba Buena performed all of the contract work except for driving of the sheetpile wall.

Because most of the work was within and adjacent to the banks of the Petaluma River, we installed a turbidity curtain to contain the sediments and protect the streamflow.

Our work included general construction, excavation of debris from the river, earthwork, demolition, grading, riprap placement, installation of steel tiebacks behind the sheetpile wall, and construction of 150 feet of decomposed granite pedestrian trail along the flood wall.
