Document Description
The resulting settlement form the lawsuit Natural Resources Defense Council, et al., v. Kirk Rodgers, as Regional Director of the United States Bureau of Reclamation, et al. and Orange Cove Irrigation District, et al. requires that restoration flows be measured at six locations on the San Joaquin River from Friant Drive to the confluence of the Merced River Gages at Friant Dam and Gravelly Ford are in place and are not part of this permit process. This project will retrofit two existing gages and install three new stream gages along the San Joaquin River and the Eastside Bypass to ensure compliance of the Settlement. The stream gages will collect data for the restoration floes and water management as required by the Settlement. One stream gage will be retrofitted on the downstream side of the Chowchilla Bifurcation Structure (river mile 213.1), and another downstream from Sack Dam (river mi. 181.1). Two new stream gages will be installed within Reach 4B between Sand Slough and the Mariposa Bypass (approx. river mi. 168-148). The exact locations are to be determined pending landowner agreements. A new gage will also be installed on the San Joaquin River either on the left or right bank approx. one quarter mi. upstream of the confluence of the San Joaquin and Merced Rivers. The exact location will be selected based on availability of site access and other logistical considerations.
