San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority proposes to drill boreholes and install gorundwater monitoring wells on Holland Tract and Mandeville Island, and to drill boreholes in Old River and the northern part of Connection Slough. The subsurface exploration includes borings and monitoring wells at the landside of each proposed abutment using truck- or track-mounted drilling equipment.
