Document Description
The Project is continuation and minor modification of the Grassland Bypass Project through adoption of the Long-Term Storm Water Management Plan 2020-2045, to allow continued use of the San Luis Drain at its current capacity (150 cfs) combined with use of existing and new short-term storage basins to reduce storm-induced discharges to Mud Slough (North) in the San Luis National Wildlife Refuge and the California Fish and Wildlife Service China Island Refuge. The proposed action makes refinements to the previously analyzed GBP and includes measures to address the capacity limitations of the Grassland Bypass Channel and San Luis Drain, storm event frequency and magnitude, and available storm water management tools to minimize discharges. It also enhances existing facilities including securing ownership of land for purposes of expanding the San Joaquin River Water Quality Improvement Project (drainage reuse area), new pump/conveyance systems, additional short-term storage basins, and a remote shut-off system for operation of tile sumps throughout the Grassland Drainage Area.
