Project Applicant
California Department of Water Resources

Document Description
The purpose of the Project is to build a boat ramp, at an existing site used to launch boats, that will provide improved boating access to the Yolo Bypass and Cache Slough Complex to conduct various activities including scientific monitoring and habitat management. Potential users of the boat ramp include, but are not limited to, DWR, Division of Boating and Waterways, and California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The Project is necessary because the nearest boat ramp is far from areas of interest (distance from Project site to nearest boat ramp is approximately 15 river miles away, at Rio Vista Public Boat Ramp or Five Points Marina). The boat ramp will be approximately 40 feet long and 16 feet wide, constructed of articulating concrete block mats.
