Update: Robles Forebay and Timber Cutoff Wall Restoration Projects Complete

Post Date:12/20/2019 1:35 AM

The Robles Fish Passage and Diversion Facility Forebay and Timber Cutoff Wall Restoration projects are now complete. This is the result of nearly two years of planning, design and permitting work by District Staff, consultants and contractors.

The Robles Forebay Restoration involved five separate permitting entities including both State and Federal agencies. This complex project removed 50,000 cubic yards of piled up debris, much of which was a result of the Thomas Fire. The cost of the project was approximately $1M.

The Timber Cutoff Wall Restoration Project involved the securing of additional funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) as well as engineering design and permitting to restore the structure to pre fire status. This project was necessary due to damage to the structure as a result of the Thomas Fire. This project had been put on hold in late 2018 due to the lack of permits and the approaching 2018-2019 wet season. The cost of the project was approximately $150K.

The presence of flowing water during the summer periods at the Robles Diversion and Fish Passage Facility since the first rains of 2018 created permitting complications for both projects. Robles is typically dry from July through October in most years.

The contractor, Union Engineering, began on the project in late October and finished on Friday, December 13, 2019.
