Design Questions

Will landscaping be included in the project improvements?
Minimal landscaping will be included as part of the project improvements in accordance with SRP design criteria for landscaping adjacent to the canal system and where not in conflict with existing overhead power line facilities.


Why are the canals not fenced or bordered by railing?

Operation and maintenance of the canals is a 24/7 effort that requires unrestricted access to the canals, canal equipment, the banks, and power facilities by SRP crews.

Fencing along the edge of the canal does not ensure safety, but it does greatly limit first responders in emergency situations.
