Document Description
San Joaquin Field Division (SJFD) plans to repair several erosions located along the coastal branch aqueduct access roads and to remove several ruts within the road. The coastal branch aqueduct is 14.86 miles long and runs from the main aqueduct to Devil’s Den Pumping Plant. Staff will repair erosions by filling and compacting erosions with a backhoe. Base material would be transported to the site via a dump truck. A water truck may be used to control dust and aid in compaction. Areas with ruts would be graded with a grader. Three culverts will be replaced. This project is estimated to take 30 days to complete. All work would be completed within DWR’s right of way. This work is necessary to maintain aqueduct access roads.
