Friant Kern Canal Middle Reach Capacity Correction Project


The Friant-Kern Canal is a 152-mile-long waterway that extends from the Friant Dam at Millerton Lake north of Fresno to the Kern River in Bakersfield. Built-in 1951, settlement in the soils along the length of (and beneath) the canal has reduced the canal’s ultimate capacity, created risk of overflowing the sides, and diminished the ability to provide consistent water delivery. This multi-phase project will restore the capacity from its current 1,600 CFS back to the original 5,000 CFS design capacities.
