Document Description
The CA Aqueduct Coastal Outage requires that annual inspections, maintenance and repairs of the underground portion of the aqueduct pipeline be conducted. Water from portions of the pipeline must be discharged to a nearby natural drainage in order to ensure the safety of workers inspecting the pipeline. In order to reduce erosion and stabilize the bank at the site of water release and 85 feet downstream, the placement of stone riprap will be used to slow water flow, protect bank stability, and support suitable sites for vegetation establishment. The project benefits public and private lands that depend on the California Aqueduct water delivery.
