Document Description
DWR's San Luis Field Division (SLFD) will repair erosions, as needed, on both sides of Aqueduct Reach 3. The eroded material onsite will first be used to backfill the erosions; if additional material is needed, it will be transported from an existing SLFD stockpile. After being backfilled, the erosions will be compacted either by using a sheep's foot roller or by using a tamper. The embankment will be recontoured to design specifications. This work will be conducted annually. State Water Project users will benefit.
