A look at the effect of adding Yolo Bypass flows to Sacramento River flow calculations

Until just two years ago, the flow on the Yolo Bypass was NOT included in Sacramento River flow calculations for determining percent or actual exprots from the Sacramento River.  The proposed changes which would count Yolo Bypass flow as if it physically flows past the I-Street bridge gage (not physically possible) will result in the allowance of additional export of Sacramento River water...water that physically does not exist.  The end result will be the robbing of the fresh water flow of the historic waterways of the Delta...Steamboat Slough, Sutter Slough, and the portion of the Sacramento River below Georgiana Slough to Rio Vista, once referred to as "Old River" or the main stem of the Sacramento River.   For the documents and references used in this presentation, please go to this page, opened in a different screen if you want to view the documents and the video at the same time.  The map can also be clicked on for a larger version.  Note also there are 100+ years of Sacramento River flow that can be reviewed from the many maps and referenced documents starting here.  And note the statement by another state agency regarding inappropriate inconsistency.....
