Links to Documents and information related to the Delta and California Water History

The links below have been compiled over a number of years and as such, some may no longer work.
The purpose of providing the links and summary below is to help those who wish to quickly learn
the FACTS about the Delta and the history of water wars in California.  To print out a pdf with

Last update 12/3/2013      DELTA TIMELINE    compiled by N. Suard, Snug Harbor Resorts, LLC on Steamboat Slough, Ryer Island draft

 A REVIEW OF DELTA HISTORY  1840 to 2013 using links to ORIGINAL MAPS and DOCUMENTS of the past 160+ YEARS

 

Data has been compiled to preserve Sacramento San Joaquin Delta history, as many  Department of Water Resources documents published in the last 8-10 years have provided both false and misleading information regarding Delta history, flood risk, seismic risk, water exports and ecosystem status.   Online references provided as noted below and may also be available by year of publication at http://deltaREvision.com  Many of the historic Delta maps are found at  http://www.deltarevision.com/Delta_maps/Delta_Maps.htm  If you don’t know about the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta region, here’s a short video you might want to see first: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hLmpVV3bq9M  

 

Data compiled by N. Suard, Esq.   First Published January 2012 (& often updated) by Snug Harbor Resorts, LLC a peninsula off Ryer Island by Steamboat Slough in the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta region of Northern California.

A look at the seaports.  By 1868…American River Rechannelized: In an effort to create faster flows that might scour out mining debris, Sacramento officials straightened the last two miles of the American River. When the project was completed in 1868, the American joined the Sacramento River about a mile upstream of its old location.

100 year flood in the Delta.  Look at who flooded…

Record Flood: The February 1986 storm dumps 10 inches of rain on Sacramento in 11 days. The American River dumps more water into Folsom than it is designed to handle. After 2 days of releases at the design level, (115,000 cubic feet per second (cfs)), officials boost releases to 134,000 cfs. Folsom performance downgraded to about a 60-year storm.

http://www.science.calwater.ca.gov/pdf/drms/DRMS_Risk_Report_section_07.pdf wrong data regarding Ryer Island flooding;  wrong data for several other islands-inflates flood history by counting floods before levees were improved and by counting floods of islands used for “controlled flooding” meaning they MEANT to flood the island.  Upper & Lower Jones Tract 2004 listed, even though it was part of the “field studies” for the In-Delta Storage planning

DRMS study for DWR by USR attempts to revise Delta history by publishing false and misleading data.  Intake facility approved by Freeport-construction begins (EBMUD).  Intake facility on Victoria Canal (CCWD) planned.  Levee improvements begin along the pathways of the “central canal” or CALFED preferred alternative.

DRMS Phase 1 report public copy is released and is highly challenged by many.  Some of the false information is corrected by December 2009.

August-Delta Vision meetings in the Delta is the first time Delta area residents are told of the planned revisions to the Delta.  Delta Vision documents use the false data found in the DRMS Phase 1 report.

Drms-wrong on Ryer Island.  DRMS Phase 1 “Final” published by DWR December 2008 is revised several times.  Go to the bottom of the DWR website to note the last revision was Dec 2009.  Usually when a “final” report is revised, one would see a summary of what was changed called “erratum”.  Not so with the DRMS Phase 1 report.    Perhaps it is because Ryer Island is a targeted island, based on false data of the DRMS Phase 1 report?

 

Google wrong on Ryer location  (Google notified, but still listing the other Ryer at least half the time in 2012!

Summary compiled at http://snugharbor.net/New-sacramento-river-intakes-2011.html 

Intake and diversion projects completed or under construction by 2011, all of which divert more water from the Sacramento River:

Folsom South Canal 200 million gallons per day

Freeport RWA  185 million gallons per day = 177,047 af per year

Elkhorn Diversion  210 cfs capacity

Sanky Diversion 434 cfs

Woodland-Davis Project  46,000 af year

North Bay Aquaduct  240 cfs

Yolo Bypass annual inundation  approx. 4000 taf year

Suisun Marsh-Cache Slough hydraulic link

Sacramento Water Intake project 160 million gallons per day

Thru-Delta reoperation adds another 1000 cfs diversion capacity or 723,970 taf

Hood TDF 4000 cfs

 

Georgiana Slough

A smattering of the maps used for the plans for the Delta….you will see that some of these planners do not know the Delta they are revising!

SFEI publishes a book on Delta Ecological history, incorrectly cataloging important historical facts, with the result that other organizations are using substantially misleading data and maps from this organization.

Links to the different documents all posted for review and comment within 1 month of each other.  Each series of documents is not by itself a whole plan for California Water, but taken together it could be construed that way.  In the meantime, documents that Delta-area residents were given the opportunity to have input seem to be largely ignored.

CA proposes “fracking” regulations years after the oil and natural gas companies have started horizontal explorations, potentially already affecting private wells and whole aquifers.  In Kern County, permits to use fracking to get at oil reserves is based on “future water resources”-they assume the tunnels of the Delta Plan/BDCP are already a done deal before the public has an official opportunity to comment or influence outcomes.
