The Resource Conservation District ofTehama County (RCDTC) proposes a fish passage improvement project on Antelope Creek near the Edwards Diversion Dam (EDD) (40°11 '13.S0"N, 122° 8'5.43"W). The objective is to improve downstream passage of fish, reduce risk of entrainment, and improve accuracy, precision and timing of irrigation diversions. As proposed, the project would consolidate the two EDD diversions into the Los Molinos Mutual Water Company (LMMWC) Ditch (also called the east ditch), construct an inverted siphon to route water from the LMMWC Ditch under New Creek to the Edwards Ditch (also called the west ditch), replace the LMMWC Ditch fish screen and install a new fish bypass system for the combined diversion screen. Also addressed is the scour zone near the LMMWC headgate through the installation of rock scour hole repair.
