Title:
Lower Tule River Irrigation District Environmental Assessment
Site:
Summary:
Reclamation awarded a 2009 ARRA-funded Challenge grant and a non-ARRA-funded Challenge grant for the Lower Tule River Irrigation District's (LTRID) Tule River Intertie Project which would include modifications to the Wood Central Ditch, construction of two new turnouts, replacement of existing road crossings, and construction of the new Intertie Canal. LTRID has acquired approximately 35 acres of right-of-way (ROW) for construction of the Intertie Canal. The purpose of the Proposed Action is to increase delivery of Tule River water within LTRID in order to offset some of the water supply impacts from the diminished storage behind the seismically unstable Success Dam and improve water management on the eastern half of the district. Reclamation would award a 2009 ARRA-funded Challenge grant and a non-ARRA-funded Challenge grant for LTRID's Tule River Intertie Project which would include modifications to the Wood Central Ditch, construction of two new turnouts, replacement of existing road crossings, and construction of the new Intertie Canal.
