Sites Reservoir Project
Revised Draft Environmental Impact Report/ Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement The proposed Sites Reservoir Project (Project) consists of the construction and operation of a new offstream surface water reservoir with a capacity of approximately 1.3-1.5 million acre-feet. The Project would use existing infrastructure to divert unappropriated flow from the Sacramento River at Red Bluff and Hamilton City and convey the water to a new offstream reservoir west of the community of Maxwell, California. New and existing facilities would move water into and out of the reservoir, with ultimate release back to the Sacramento River system via existing canals and a new pipeline located near Dunnigan, California. The Project would require modifications to the Glenn-Colusa Irrigation District system and the Tehama-Colusa Canal to move water into and out of the reservoir. Water conveyance between Sites Reservoir and the canals and Dunnigan pipeline would be facilitated by an existing and one new regulating reservoir and two new associated pumping/generating plants. New electrical substations would connect the pumping/generating facilities and their associated electrical switchyards to an existing overhead power line. Three new recreation areas would also be constructed around the new Sites Reservoir. New roads would be constructed to provide access to Project facilities and recreation areas, and some existing roads would be relocated or improved. Construction of Sites Reservoir would also necessitate construction of a bridge or bypass road to connect Maxwell with the community of Lodoga.
