Document Description
The Department of Water Resources has responsibility for maintaining the Yolo bypass, part of the Sacramento River Flood Control Project (SRFCP). Flood flows during the past several flood seasons have deposited sediment near the Fremont Weir at the northern end of the Yolo Bypass. These sediment deposits reduce the flow capacity of the Weir and the efficiency of the flood control system by blocking water from entering the Bypass and forcing flows to remain in the Sacramento River. Approximately 800,000 cubic yards of sediment need to be removed from in front of and downstream of the Weir; such action will resoter design grade of this portion of the flood control sustem. The sediment will be moved to a spoil site on privately owned agricultural land to the east of the Bypass. The project will take place between August 1 and November 15 of 2006.
