Houston Canal and West Canal Erosion Repair and Road Grading Project
Document Type
NOE - Notice of Exemption

Document Description
Faults in the levees and dam surrounding the Forebay must be maintained to protect against failures. If the levee breaches along West or Houston Canals, it has the potential to compromise the State Water Project's ability to deliver water to millions of Californians; therefore, ensuring its safe and proper functioning is a high priority for the Department of Water Resources. By restoring several areas of eroded levee along Houston and West Canals to original design, this project will help ensure that the Forebay facilities remain safe and fully operational.
