Document Description
The Gorman Creek Improvement Channel and the Peace Valley Pipeline are part of the conveyance system for providing over 525,000 acre-feet/year of State Water Project water to Southern California. On January 16, 2007 approximately 1,000 foot long section of the Gorman Creek Improvement Channel failed which also impacted the adjacent Peace Valley Pipeline. The repair project includes exploratory work, groundwater dewatering, excavation of fill and the damaged concrete canal lining, placement of structural fill and embankment material, construction of new concrete canal lining, roadway surfacing and the concrete encasement of impacted section of the Peace Valley Pipeline. The citizens of Southern California will benefit by restoring a major source of imported water for domestic, municipal and agricultural uses.
