Del Puerto Creek Sediment Removal

The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has adopted a Mitigated Negative Declaration (MND) for the Del Puerto Creek Sediment Removal Project in Stanislaus County.

The Del Puerto Creek Sediment Removal Project includes actions to restore channel flow capacity within Del Puerto Creek, and to forestall potential damages to the California Aqueduct levee. These actions include the removal of silt/cobble within 200 feet upstream of where Del Puerto Creek crosses under the Aqueduct, returning the drainage to its intended condition; placement of rip-rap along both sides of the creek embankments to stabilize the banks and prevent erosion of the Aqueduct levee; repairing a rocked drainage ditch that channels water runoff from the Aqueduct levee directly to the creek bed, improving the flow of water away from the levee toe; and access road improvements. DWR’s Division of Operations and Maintenance Dam Safety Branch has recommended these improvements in order to maintain channel flow capacity and prevent potential damage or failure of the Aqueduct levee. The work will occur biennially during the dry season, August through October 2015-2020.

DWR adopted the Final MND on April 21, 2015. Information regarding the Final MND is listed below.
