Document Description
The Project consists of components that would both enlarge and realign the existing canal within an approximate 33-mile reach of the Friant Kern Canal (FKC) (milepost [MP] 88.2 to 121.5). Enlargements to about 10 miles of the existing canal would occur at the northernmost and southernmost portions of the project area by raising and widening the banks. Enlarging the canal would be accomplished by removing the uppermost extent of the existing concrete lining and, at the level of the demolished lining, excavating a horizontal bench (approximately 14 feet wide on each embankment or a total of 28 feet wide) into the existing grade and constructing new (i.e., wider) upper embankments, which would receive new concrete linings. Note: see NOP for full details.
