Document Description
The purpose for conducting the Palo Verde C Canal Culvert Replacement is to do maintenance on the C Canal Crossing through the Cibola Levee. There are four culverts with flap gates that allow passage of excess irrigation water from Palo Verde Irrigation District irrigation canals to flow to the Colorado River. The four culverts are in poor condition and need replacement. One of the goals is to allow water to flow through the culverts as designed. The culverts are not currently functioning properly due to deterioration of the culverts. Reclamation proposes to excavate the culverts using a land-based long reach excavator. All maintenance would be conducted on previously disturbed areas, therefore maintenance activities will not divert current channel flows and/or impact any wetland vegetation.
