Published Sept. 13, 2021
Expiration date: 9/22/2021

The requester proposes the excavation of a 12-inch steel pipeline located approximately 0.5 miles southwest of the intersection of NE 23rd Street and North Sooner Road along the north bank of the North Canadian River. Activities associated with the proposed project would include excavation of the pipeline, repair, and backfill of the site using the excavated material. The proposed excavation is anticipated to be as great as 40-feet in length and 8-feet in width. Access to the site is proposed to be through an existing gate off NE 23rd Street and crews and equipment will
travel down the existing, cleared right-of-way. No access paths would need to be established or disturbed for the activity. During backfill activities, the excavation would be filled with removed soils, and would be replaced in 6-inch lifts. Each 6-inch lift would be placed with the proper density and moisture. Once the backfill is complete, disturbed areas would be revegetated with Bermuda grass (Cynodon dactylon).
