Document Description
The investigation would drill on the northeast and northwest sides of the California Aqueduct. Two borings are anticipated at the proposed locations using two different machines. First, a hollow stem auger would drill a 6-inch diameter boring to groundwater level (about 60 feet). The rest of the work would be done using a self casing wire line mud rotary drill rig. The rig would drill a 4-inch diameter boring to the maximum depth of 200 feet. The proposed drilling would occur within the California Department of Water Resources' right-of-way and is anticipated to take two weeks to complete. All work would be limited to the California Department of Water Resources right-of-way.
