Other Location Info
The Project Site is located approximately 6.5 miles northeast of Georgetown, California and includes three segments of lining along the Georgetown Ditch irrigation canal. Segment 1 includes a 1,100-linear-foot section of existing irrigation canal extending west of Mt. Cedar Road. An existing maintenance access road located along the south side of the existing canal at Mount Cedar Road would be used for construction access. As a result of last year’s winter storms, the access road is blocked by several fallen trees that will need to be removed prior to construction. Segment 2 is located adjacent to Balderston Road and includes two 200-foot sections of canal. An existing maintenance access road located along the south side of the canal and accessible from Balderston Road would be used for Segment 2 construction access.
