Document Description
Construction of a new intake and fish screen at a site along the lower third of Victoria Canal (in the south-central part of the Delta), a pumping plant, and an associated pipeline across Victoria Island from the new intake to CCWD's Old River conveyance system on Byron Tract. The project purpose is to protect and improve the quality of water delivered to CCWD's untreated- and treated-water customers. Key objectives are: improve delivered water quality, especially during drought periods; protect and improve health and/or aesthetic benefits to consumers; improve operational flexibility; and protect delivered water quality during emergencies. The project would not increase CCWD's total Delta diversion capacity (rate or annual quantity), but would change the location (and quality) of existing diversions.
