Document Description
PCWA is proposing to initiate the Middle Fork lnterbay Sediment Management Project. The proposed project Involves the placement of approximately 65,000 cubic yards of sediment removed from Middle Fork lnterbay. The effects of sediment removal activities at Middle Fork lnterbay were addressed in the Environmental Impact Statement/Report (SCH# 2012082046) prepared for the Middle Fork American River Project. This Subsequent Impact Report evaluates the environmental effects of sediment disposal activities at the proposed EBRL Sediment Disposal Area. The proposed project would consist of the hauling of sediment approximately 6 miles from Middle Fork lnterbay to the EBRL Sediment Disposal Area. Sediment will be graded and contoured to the surrounding grade. The purpose of the overall project is to remove accumulated sediment and large rocks deposited from runoff of severe storms in 2016 and 2017 in front of Middle Fork Powerhouse. This accumulation Impedes the flow of water away from the turbines reducing power production. In addition, the low-level outlet for the dam was found to be Inoperable due to the sediment that has migrated downstream.
