Document Description
The Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (Metropolitan) proposes to perform weed abatement at Sunrise and Esperanza avenues within the community of Cabazon and to repair a section of exposed concrete Colorado River Aqueduct (CRA) siphon near the Whitewater River. Metropolitan proposes to conduct weed abatement activities along the boundaries of a parcel located northwest of the intersection of Sunrise and Esperanza avenues. Dry annual vegetation will be cleared using hand tools up to a maximum width of 100 feet from public roads and residences to reduce fire hazard. Metropolitan also proposes to cover a section of exposed CRA siphon just east of the Whitewater River. Materials located downslope of the exposed area and within a nearby mining pit will be used to cover the top of the siphon. No work will occur within the Whitewater River streambed.
