Doughty Cut Flow Monitoring Project

NOE - Notice of Exemption
Document Description
In an effort to understand South Delta water circulation patterns and to help improve water quality, DWR intends to install nine flow monitoring stations near Clifton Court Forebay (CCF) and locations east of the Forebay. Five stations would focus on the "Doughty Cut area" as DWR tries to determine circulation patterns therein order to develop an understanding of why salinity standards area not being met at DWR's compliance station at Old River at Tracy Blvd. Paradise Cut and Tom Paine Slough are suspected of acting as salt contributors during low tides, when salinity usually improves.
