The San Joaquin River Restoration Program is extending public review of a joint Initial Study and Environmental Assessment for the Eastside Bypass Improvements Project by 10 days, the Bureau of Reclamation said in its latest release.
The original comment period was scheduled to close on Tuesday, January 9 and will now close on Friday, January 19, 2018.
The proposed Eastside Bypass Improvements Project would improve levee stability and thereby increase the flow capacity in the Eastside Bypass – a critical improvement as the Eastside Bypass between Sand Slough and the Mariposa Bypass is identified as the most limiting channel reach with regards to levee stability.
According to the announcement, the proposed project also calls for modifications to existing structures.
Project completion is expected by the end of 2020.
