Document Description
Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) operates the Boardman Canal as its primary water supply conveyance to its Zone III area. According to information provided by PCWA, this portion of the canal operates year round with peak flows in the project area occurring in October and November. The Secrety Town Pipeline, a portion of the Boardman canal, is an inverted siphon, transporting water from one hillside to another, and passing under I-80 and the UPRR. The existing siphon has an open channel section located just east of the railroad tracks, between the existing inlet and outlet.
