- Route Channel Maintenance Along Portions of Big Dry Creek and Fancher Canal in the Urban Rural Areas of Clovis and Fresno
- The proposed project is routine channel maintenance for flood control and water conveyance along portions of Big Dry Creek and Fancher Canal in the urban and rural areas of Clovis and Fresno. The Big Dry Creek maintenance reach starts at the Enterprise Canal near Shepherd Avenue and continues downstream to Highway 168 for a distance of approximately 3.25 miles. The Fancher Canal maintenance reach starts at the Fresno Metropolitan Flood Control District's basins near Highland Avenue and continues downstream to Clovis Avenue for a distance of approximately 5 miles. Activities inculde the removal of living and dead vegetation, sediment, and debris from inside the channel and along the banks, construction and maintenance of dirt access roads along channels, repairs to areas with bank erosion, the application of herbicides and rodenticides to control vegetation and rodents inside and along the banks, and repairs and maintenance to existing flow control structures. This work involves the use of hand-crews, power tools, heavy equipment such as excavators, front-end loaders, backhoes, haul trucks, dozers, pump trucks, and herbicide and rodenticide application equipment. The District will obtain a Streambed Alteratioin Agreement from the Calif. Department of Fish and Wildlife for this work.
