Maps: Conveyance, Canals and Tunnels and the Intake Facilities (aka fish screens)

     The Bay Delta Conservation Plan has been released for public comment.  You can find the complete set of BDCP 41,000 pages here or better year go to our
 BDCP search page to review topics of specific interest to you. 

Bottom line:  people outside the Delta region want more water than the Delta can provide most water years.  Whether by canals, tunnels or "conveyance" the goal is to divert Sacramento River water that would normally flow through the Delta, and send that water elsewhere.  Below are maps and documents that show elements of the latest "conveyance" plans which might include canals, tunnels and use of existing waterways for "restoration" activities that are really just part of the conveyance objectives.  The planning process for these documents and maps probably reflect over $6,000,000,000 in tax payer funded studies.  There are thousands of documents on this particular issue, so go to the http://www.deltarevision.com/central_conveyance_building_blocks.htm page to see most of those documents from the last 10 years of planning.  Sections of the CALFED "Preferred Alternative" conveyance plan for a central canal have already been built or are in process, and some are "shovel ready" and awaiting approval from the Delta Stewardship Council as an "interim action" of the New Delta Plan.   See All Planning Maps   Please take a close look at the 1945 conveyance plan map so you will better understand the projects mapped below!
1998-2000 CALFED and before Canals, Conveyance and Tunnel plans 2005 to current BDCP and DWR Conveyance, tunnels and canal plans

While the media buzzes about a "peripheral canal", distracting the California population from the true facts or issues at hand, the building blocks of the Central Conveyance route or the "preferred alternative of CalFed in 1999 is being built right now.  Between the increase in Sacramento River water intake once the Central Conveyance is completed, and the additional water that will be taken for other Northern California future water needs, there probably will not even be a need to build an additional canal because the Sacramento River will be drained enough to leave nothing fresh of the central Delta, most likely.  (author's opinion

Do you notice how the various improvements and proposals fit the 1945 conveyance plan map that will result in insufficient water left in the Delta?
