Document Description
The California Department of Fish and Wildlife has executed Lake and Streambed Alteration Agreement number 1600-2019-0278-R2, pursuant to Section 1602 of the Fish and Game Code to the Placer County Water Agency as represented by Ben Ransom. The project is limited to the operation and maintenance of the Moore Canal Diversion Dam. The Moore Canal Diversion Dam is a seasonal flashboard dam with rectangular abutments connected with a concrete sill. The dam is approximately 6 feet tall and 56 feet wide. The concrete sill supports a hinged metal I-beam check structure which supports the flashboards, when installed, or lays flat when not in use. The I-beams are held up with pins when the flashboards are installed. The center of the concrete sill contains a 2-foot by 2-foot notch that passes water underneath the flashboards. The project would cold pane 0.25 feet of existing asphalt concrete (AC) pavement and replace with 0.25 feet of hot-mix asphalt (Type A) . The scope of work is from edge of travel-way (ETW) to AC roadway. All work will be performed within the existing right of way.
