Barriers and Gates planned for the Delta waterways

Comparing maps & documents from 1988 to the present showing "gates" or barriers

Things are not always as they seem.  Sometimes its easier to accomplish a goal in little steps rather than trying to take huge strides.  The current "2 gates" project as proposed does appear to be just a building block of the overall CalFed plan for a Central Canal.  Take a look at the planning maps from the last twelve years and see what YOU think....2 gates, 4 gates, 9 gates, barriers...the maps are all here. 

By the way, the barrier gates as planned would serve three important functions:  keep fresh water in the central canal area, flowing south to the export pumps, and also keep fish out of the freshwater to stop the fish from being killed in the siphons and water pumps, and to divert fresh water into planned in-delta water
storage islands.
