Sacramento Weir Sediment Removal


The Department is the lead agency for the Sacramento Weir Sediment Removal Project under the California Environmental Quality Act and has prepared a Draft Initial Study and Mitigated Negative Declaration. The public comment period is open from March 12, 2009 to April 12, 2009. The Sacramento Weir is located at Sacramento River Mile 63.5 in West Sacramento, Yolo County. DWR proposes to remove approximately 38,600 cubic yards of sediment from the weir approach. Beginning on August 15, 2009, the Sacramento Maintenance Yard will mobilize equipment, including rubber-tired dump trucks, pickup trucks, bulldozers, dump trucks, rollers, graders, loaders, scrapers, excavators, and water trucks to the site.
