Document Description
Note: Review Per Lead The purpose of the project is to enhance floodplain rearing habitat and fish passage in the Yolo Bypass and/or suitable areas of the lower Sacramento River. The proposed project analyzes the No Action/No Project alternative and six action alternatives. The project would primarily consist of a headworks structure, an outlet channel, and downstream channel improvements. Each of these facilities are components of the three different channel alignments (east, center, and west) in the Yolo Bypass. Each alignment would terminate downstream into the existing Tule Pond. Additional alternative-specific features have been identified to further meet the intent of the project objectives.
