YCWA South Canal Diversion Water Supply and Fish Passage Enhancement Project: Annual Maintenance
MND - Mitigated Negative Declaration
Present Land Use
Extractive District Zoning, Rural Community and Natural Resource General Plan Designations
The project includes annual maintenance of a river channel that was reconstructed in 2018 under a previous MND (SCH 2018062047). The river channel is located upstream of the South Canal Diversion and requires annual maintenance to ensure water supply reliability and enhanced fish passage. The project involves seven phases: (1) mobilization; (2) temporary access ramp installation; (3) construction of temporary berms to decrease turbidity and protect fish; (4) river alluvium excavation; (5) spreading excavated river alluvium on the adjacent gravel bar; (6) cobble lining and rootwad installation, if necessary; and (7) site clean-up and demobilization.
