- Return Capacity Improvements for Regional Drought Resiliency Project
- The proposed Project includes replacing four wells and installing three discharge outfalls and approximately 3.96 miles of pipeline. The four replace wells would be located in agricultural land within 100 feet of the existing wells. The District would connect a total of nine wells, including the four replacement wells and five other existing wells, to the Friant Kern Canal (FKC). Two wells would be connected to a new discharge outfall at Mile Post (MP) 129.93. Four wells would be connected to a new discharge outfall at MP 131.29. Two wells would be connected to a new discharge outfall at MP 137.36. The District would utilize an existing discharge outfall (MP 142.01) for one well. The new discharge outfalls would be installed below the top-of-bank within the FKC prism. Each connection to the FKC would require a standard turn-in and small delivery gate for control. The proposed Project would improve long-term resiliency to drought, improve water conveyance to allow for the return of previously stored water to the District and the Districts banking partners, and help achieve the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation's WaterSMART Drought Response Program goals of modernizing infrastructure.
