Document Description
Yuba County Water Agency (Yuba Water) is investigating the feasibility of constructing a nature-like fishway (NLF) at Daguerre Point Dam to improve fish passage on the lower Yuba River while maintaining present water supply and hydraulic debris retention functions of the dam and impoundment. Specifically, Yuba Water is proposing to complete a site investigation program to provide surface and subsurface geological information for planning and preliminary design of the proposed NLF at Daguerre Point Dam. The Daguerre Point Dam NLF Site Investigations Program (Proposed Project) includes four field components: aerial photogrammetry, geophysical investigations, drilling and testing, and excavation of test pits. The surface and sub-surface information gathered from this work would provide sufficient site-specific data to assist in determining the feasibility of the NLF.
