Western Pacific Interceptor Canal: Channel Maintenance Project


The Flood Maintenance Office's Sutter Maintenance Yard proposes to conduct channel maintenance activities at the Western Pacific Interceptor Canal (WPIC). WPIC is located in Yuba County north of Rio Oso and just east of State Route 70.

Project activities include debris and/or obstruction removal, vegetation management and wildlife damage management activities within the WPIC. Channel maintenance activities are required to maintain design flows, ensure proper water conveyance, and allow adequate inspection of the channel.
