Document Description
MFWC is proposing to remove the existing Meridian Diversion/Pumping Plant along the Sacramento River in the vicinity of the Town of Meridian, Sutter County CA and replace it with a new diversion/pumping plant equipped with retractable cylindrical fish screens to preventing entrainment of migrating, at-risk, native fish species. The project would also include improvement of the Main Canal to increase flow capacity to the Drexler Service area, extension of the Drexler Pipeline, and construction of a new Drexler re-lift pump station on the Main Canal east of the Sacramento River. The existing Drexler Diversion/Pumping Plant located south of the Meridian Diversion on the Sacramento River would be removed. The Proposed Project/Action would not increase MFWC's overall diversion capacity from the Sacramento River. All work would be performed in compliance with Reclamation Board, CDFG, NMFS, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service requirements.
