Document Description
Valley Water is proposing the Canal Maintenance Program to provide a coordinated, efficient approach to preventative, routine, and corrective maintenance of approximately 25 miles of canals. Canal maintenance activities include, but are not limited to: vegetation management; sediment removal; erosion control and bank stabilization; minor repairs to the canal lining and walls; culvert repairs, replacement, and installation; access road maintenance; management of animal burrows; and other minor maintenance activities. Timely completion of canal maintenance is critical to protecting public safety, reducing maintenance costs, reducing the risk of inadvertent damage to private and public property associated with deferred maintenance, and minimizing and reducing impacts to sensitive species, their habitats, and the environment. Implementation of the Canal Maintenance Program would not affect future canal operations or uses.
