Title:
Friant-Kern Canal Capacity Restoration Draft EA/FONSI
Site:
Summary:
Bureau of Reclamation proposes to restore the capacity of the Friant-Kern Canal (FKC) from the current operating capacity of 4,680 cfs to the previously designed and constructed capacity of 5,000 cfs over 59 miles of canal length, from mile post (MP) 29.14 to MP 88.22, which includes modifications to the Little Dry Creek Wasteway at MP 5.44. Proposed modifications to the FKC would include constructing raised sections of new lining attached to and above the existing concrete and earth lining; raising existing banks; modifying check structures and inlet/outlet structures; removing three timber farm bridges, possibly replacing one timber farm bridge with a concrete farm bridge, and possibly modifying up to 37 other bridges crossing the canal, for a total of 40 bridge modifications or removals; and modifying the Little Dry Creek Wasteway Facility at MP 5.44. Construction activities on the FKC would be contained between the outside slope toes of the canal's existing embankments, except for roadway travel and mobilization.
