Document Description
The San Joaquin Area Flood Control Agency proposes the Smith Canal Gate Project to design and construct a fixed wall structure with a gate-type opening at the mouth of the Smith Canal adjacent to the San Joaquin River/Stockton Deep Water Ship Channel. The proposed project is needed because the existing levees along Smith Canal are heavily encroached upon and cannot be certified as meeting FEMA standards or the State's Urban Levee Design Criteria. The proposed closure device would provide flood protection at the Base Flood Elevation of 9.9 (NAVD 88) and would isolate the canal from the main channel of the river during high flow event to facilitate 100-year and ultimately 200-year level of performance.
