Document Description
The project is approximately four miles west of Nevada City. Elevation at approximately 2,235 feet MSL. The reservoir is fed by the Newtown Canal, which is from a diversion from Deer Creek. Intent is to remove sediments and vegetation from the reservoir and to restore to its former design capacity. An estimated 6,600 cy of sediment would be removed over a period of two to three months. The sediment removal would be accomplished by diverting canal flows around the reservoir. The accumulated sediment would be removed using front-end loaders, excavators, dump trucks, drag lines, and other suitable equipment. The excavated sediment would be placed on adjacent previously disturbed in order to drain the sediment of remaining water and to allow drying or would be transported off site to be recycled as fill material, as appropriate.
