• Rossmoor Bar oak woodland expansion​

    The oak woodland at Rossmoor Bar on the American River Parkway is being expanded. The project will increase the existing oak woodland (planted in 2009) nearly 14 acres.  The temporary deer fence will be removed when the trees and shrubs have grown tall enough to withstand deer browsing. The red area on the map​ (with the star) is the expansion area, and will be fenced to keep the deer from eating the new seedlings.  The black hatched area is the existing oak woodland area that was planted in 2009, and will remain unfenced​

  • Well Drilling at Ancil Hoffman Park Begins May 10

    Aerojet Rocketdyne will install a groundwater monitor well in Ancil Hoffman Park starting on May 10, 2016. This well will facilitate the collection of routine water quality samples and water elevation measurements. Drilling is targeted to reach a depth of approximately 550 feet. See the notice letter and map for more information.

    Drilling operations will take approximately 12-15 working days. Well drilling may be noisy at times, but will be limited to daylight hours only (no earlier than 7:00 am and no later than 6:00 pm). No weekend work is planned.

    If needed, temporary controls for pedestrian and vehicular traffic will be implemented at the project site during construction. At no time will the equipment be left unattended. Work crews or off-hour security personnel will be at the site continuously throughout the project, including nights and weekends. When complete, all that will be visible will be a flush-to-ground, locking, 18-inch diameter, circular traffic-rated utility box.
