SPL-408-PN-2019-0016 San Gabriel River Channel Geotechnical Exploration

Los Angeles District
Published June 28, 2019

The City of Pico Rivera is proposing to drill down 100 feet below ground surface to obtain two soil borings using rotary wash drilling techniques. Immediately after the drilling is complete, the bore holes will be backfilled with cement-bentonite slurry using tremie-grouting technique. A truck-mounted rotary wash rig will be used to drill through the soil. The diameter of the borings will be approximately 4 to 6 inches. The upper 5 feet will be excavated using a hand auger technique to ensure there is no conflict with underground utility. Additionally, a non-destructive seismic refraction survey will be performed near the proposed pier locations in support of the soil borings.  Access to the river would occur on foot, and no vegetation would be removed or ground disturbance would occur.  The purpose of the project is to collect geotechnical information for the design of a future bicycle/pedestrian bridge over the San Gabriel River near the intersection of Holbrook Street and Pico Vista Road.
