Document Description
DWR San Joaquin Field Division (SJFD) plans to remove sediment from three overchutes and to create "bowls" on the inlet side to capture excess sediment during rainy season. This is necessary to protect existing State Water Project infrastructure. In addition, an access road would be established to aid in annual clean up, and an existing embankment would be sloped due to safety concerns.
