The Yolo Bypass Wildlife area covers approximately 16,770 acres of managed wildlife habitat and agricultural lands. Expansion of the Wildlife area over many years has resulted in the need to better integrate the individual drainage systems througout the 16,770 acre property. This project addresses the permitting necessary to initiate the integration of these systems. Funding will be use to develop and submit permitting packages to position the overall project for contruction grant funding.
