B Road Drainage Restoration
NOE - Notice of Exemption
Department of Water Resources, San Joaquin Field Division
The Department of Water Resources, San Joaquin Field Division (SJFD) is proposing to restore the drainage system on the south side of "B" road, which is located just north of SJFD. The work is required to prevent overflow onto the road during severe winter storms. The work would involve clearing vegetation in a 40-foot-wide area along 1.25 miles of the road. A total of 13 CMP culverts exist as part of the road drainage system. These culverts will be cleared of sediment and debris. Av-ditch will then be reestablished to channel water into the culvert inlets. All excess sediment will be transported to the nearby Wheeler Ridge dump site (.5 miles away).
B Road - In between Sabadon Rd. and WGPP Headworks Rd.
