Document Description
This project replaces a manually operated gate on the Bear Creek Inlet Structure with an automated gate. This improvement allows the gate to be operated remotely and enables more responsive control of flows through the structure. The automation project does not affect the basic configuration of the structure, change its capacity, or alter its purpose. Beneficiaries include the Stevinson Water District and other entities along Bear Creek who will benefit from more responsive control of flood waters.
