Document Description
This project proposes the replacement for the Canon and Garden Bar siphons along the Doty North Canal. This canal is for raw water conveyance, running generally east to west through the rural/residential lands west of Auburn. The existing siphons were originally installed in the 1970s through the establishment of the Small Reclamation Act, Public Law 984. The Doty North Canal carries irrigation water to NID customers and does not supply any existing or prospective water treatment plant. The project is to replace the existing 24-inch diameter "techite" pipes siphons with new 36-inch diameter PVC C905 pipe. Currently, the Doty North Canal is providing a flow of 16.5 cubic feet per second (cfs). The Master Plan Flow for the canal is 30 cfs.
