Document Description
NOTES: Review per Lead The present canal segment is approximately 1900 feet in length and ranges from three feet to appoximately seven feet in width. The proposed project would widen the majority of the existing Newtown Canal segment to 10 to 14 feet and create a nine foot wide access berm for maintenance along the widened canal locations. Due to physical constraints (houses and structures) that prohibit canal widening and maintenance, two canal sections on each end and one in the middle of the segment will be placed within pipes. The east end pipe would be 36" diameter pipe for approximately 280 feet. At the west end it would be a 25" pipe. In the middle segment it would be 20-foot of pipe (36-inch diameter) in order to protect existing undermining of tree roots. In another location, a culvert (approximately 12 feet in length) will be added to replace a current wooden bridge that spans the canal.
