Document Description
Removal of accumulated silt from North Main Drain. Reclamation District No. 537 (RD 537) proposes to remove the accumulated silt with the use of dragline, which would be operated from the top of the berm. Aquatic vegetation growing in the interior of the Drain, such as tules and water primrose (Ludwigia peploides), would be removed as part of the project. All bank side vegetation such as willows and annual grasses, cattails (Typha sp.), and tules (Scripus sp., Juncus sp.) will be left in place and would not be affected by the project. The removed accumulated silt will be piled on the berms in the adjacent upland habitat, at a minimum of five to ten feet from the top of the bank.
