The California Department of Water Resources and the United States Bureau of Reclamation are jointly conducting an environmental study and are proposing to release a draft Environmental Impact Report/Statement for the Interim South Delta Program (ISDP). One of the components of this project is dredging of approximately five miles of the Old River, a natural channel in the southern Delta. This paper addresses necessary environmental work focusing on the planning procedures and requirements for dredging and disposal activities. It discusses water, soil, and sediment sample collection and laboratory results. It also discusses geotechnical investigations necessary for the planning process and a proposed seepage monitoring program as a post dredging activity.
