Diversion Dam Cut

Summary

Matagorda County will construct a water circulation channel from the old Colorado River Navigation Channel to the Diversion Channel in Matagorda County. The purpose of the project is to increase water flow and quality into the Old Colorado River Navigation Channel and, indirectly, improve barge traffic and public safety in the Colorado River Locks that are located in the Gulf Intracoastal Waterway (GIWW). The channel will be a 4 ft-deep by 50-foot wide (at the bottom) land cut between the Diversion Channel and the Navigation Channel. This new cut will be approximately 1,150 feet in length and be lined with a concrete mat on the bottom and sides for erosion control.
