Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) propose to modify an 18" x 40" galvanized steel culvert on Inyo County property by attaching a 6 inch tall vertical stand-pipe to the downstream (discharge) end to match existing water level. The addition will be made of 12 inch PVC pipe. Water will continue to drain through the culvert, but the water surface will stabilize at a level approximately 2 feet higher than the culvert bottom. Staff gages will beplaced in the stream bed above and below the culvert to monitor water level.
