The Delta-Mendota Canal is owned by the United States Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) and operated and maintained by the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority (Water Authority).  The Water Authority has a responsibility to the USBR to ensure that all activities within the Delta-Mendota Canal Right-Of-Way meet or exceed their standards.  In the event that encroachment of the Right-Of-Way is required in order to make repairs to an existing facility, the Water Authority will need to issue an Access Permit prior to the start of construction.
