Photo Update: Delta Drought Barrier Removal

The Department of Water Resources’ project to dismantle an emergency drought barrier that has spanned West False River between Jersey and Bradford islands since June is well underway.

The barrier was erected to block salt water from pushing into the central Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta from San Francisco Bay.

The Delta’s water is used by 25 million Californians, including residents of the Delta and Contra Costa, Alameda and Santa Clara counties.

DWR’s State Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project convey Delta water through their aqueducts to distant parts of the state.

Dismantling of the approximately 750-foot rock barrier began on September 8 and will be completed by mid-November.
