Document Description
The Gorman Creek Improvement Channel (GCIC) is part of the conveyance system for providing over 525,000 acre-feet/year of California Aqueduct water to Southern California. It is a concrete-lined trapezoidal aqueduct (canal) with a flow capacity of 900 cubic feet per second. In 2007 an adjacent portion of the GCIC was found in critical need of repair, because any further use was likely to result in significant damage or complete failure of the concrete liner. Repairing the GCIC maintains its utility as an alternative water conveyance for the adjacent Peace Valley Pipeline during maintenance outages.
