Those of us who live and work in the Delta see the construction going on...while others talk about a new Delta Plan, and we're supposed to  have an opportunity to comment and perhaps suggest a better way to protect our land and water rights and the environment, too, the projects are already being built.  Sections of the CALFED "Preferred Alternative" through-Delta canal and also sections of a canal & tunnel system around the Delta are being constructed now.  Ignore the names of the various projects and look at their FUNCTION...like the Folsom South Canal that will divert water that used to flow into the Sacramento River, and the Natomas Intake & fish screen, and the Empire Tract intake, and the Yolo Bypass levee modifications....its all happening now.  Below are some links to reference documents and photos of the ongoing construction, or website "print screens" of the project details that are alread completed.  The Bay Delta Conservation Plan may be behind schedule but the CONVEYANCE part of the plan is being built before our eyes and it will have the capacity to divert all Sacramento River water away from the Delta should DWR decide to do that...if you want to go to the planning documents, there are links to the main documents below:

Egbert Levee improvements under construction January 2012.  Part of http://safca.org Yolo Bypass changes.  See also:
 
Jan 2012 Boudin Island "super levee".

ongoing construction per Natomas-SAFCA.org documents
 
     
 
Accroding to the contractor the Folsom South Canal is more than just flood control... click to see enclargement!  Below are website "screen prints" from the construction of various new intakes that will divert more water from the Sacramento River & Delta...the one on Empire Tract is still under construction as is the one near the Sacramento Airport.  Forget the names and look at the FUNCTION of the construction project...and take a look at what is already built and ready to operate if not already operating...
 
 







       
   



1945 flood control plan looks like the 1012 plan map, doesn't it?
