Document Description
NOTE: Joint document consists of MND, EA, FONSI. The Board in partnership with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers (Corps), the federal sponsor, has jointly prepared an Environmental Assessment/Initial Study for this proposed rehabilitation project under the Corps' Public Law 84-99 Rehabilitation Assistance for damaged levees. The Corps and Board propose to repair 10 sites on Chowchilla Bypass on the left and right levees damaged by through seepage and sand boils. The levees will be restored to the pre-flood condition. The right bank repairs will consist of three landside seepage berms totaling approximately 180 feet. The left bank repair will consist of a continuous slurry wall constructed along the center line of the levee for a total of approximately 15,840 feet. The Corps, with DWR cost share, will fund and contract for the work. The levees protect a 700-square mile area, which includes agriculture fields and the towns of Mendota, Firebaugh, and Dos Palos.
