Jones Tract and the Bacon Island "In-Delta Storage" studies

     On June 1, 2004 the engineer that open and closes the Delta Cross Channel Gates received an order to close the gates.  His notes say "Jones Tract levee failure" June 1, 2004.  On June 3, 2004 the media reported a "sunny day" levee failure at Jones Tract, in the Central area of the California Delta, nearby Bacon Island.  The event was used to get funding for more CalFed surface storage studies, and the whole Jones Tract levee failure, time it took to fill the Upper and Lower Jones Tract, water quality impacts, impacts to the interior levees and impacts to surrounding islands was all monitored from 6/3/2004.  Yet records that are still found online show that on June 1, 2004, the Delta Cross Channel gates were closed by USBR, which noted the "Jones Tract levee failure".  (see pdf comparing documents found online.  You will note that the DCC operations log found at the DWR website listed removed the Jones Tract notation).
     Even though the discrepancy of dates hasn't yet been answered by DWR, the fact is a huge amount of tax payer dollars has been spent on the Jones Tract and In-Delta Studies.  For that reason alone, the maps and documents related to Jones Tract are provided in the hopes someone can answer the many unanswered questions regarding Jones Tract and more recently, Bacon Island.  Please go to our In-Delta water storage page for the full summary.
