Project Details
Title: Eastside Bypass Improvements Project Initial Study/Draft Environmental Assessment
Summary: The proposed project is part of the San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP). DWR proposes to design, permit, and implement the following three project elements to facilitate fish migration and increased Restoration Flow capacity in the Eastside Bypass by 2020: 1. Reinforce approximately 2 miles of levee along the Eastside Bypass to improve levee stability and reduce seepage (Reach O levee improvements). 2. Modify the existing Eastside Bypass Control Structure to improve fish passage. 3. Replace the existing culvert at the Dan McNamara Road crossing at the Eastside Bypass to improve fish passage. In addition, Reclamation proposes to design, permit, and implement the following project element to facilitate fish migration in the Eastside Bypass by 2020: 1. Improve fish passage by removing two weirs located in the Eastside Bypass that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service operate to provide water to the Merced National Wildlife Refuge, and replace an existing abandoned well with a new well to provide replacement water supply for the Refuge. The EBIP Final EA/IS consists of the December 2017 Draft EA/IS, including Appendices A and B; public comments received (Appendix C), responses to public comments and minor text changes to the EA/IS (Appendix D), Endangered Species Act (ESA) compliance documentation (Appendix E) and National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) Section 106 compliance documentation (Appendix F).
