Horizontal Subsurface Canal Drains Project
NOE - Notice of Exemption
The El Dorado Irrigation District (District) proposes to install horizontal drains to repair leakage below the El Dorado canal in El Dorado County. Inspection of the El Dorado Irrigation district Canal system detected groundwater seepages, at two separate locations on the steep slope immediately below the canal bench. Seepage under the canal bench has been ongoing and progressing into a potential structural and safety issue.
