About the CVP
Other major CVP facilities include:
The Madera and Friant-Kern canals which carry water from Millerton Reservoir to farm lands to the north and south.
The Tracy Pumping Plant which lifts water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to the Delta-Mendota Canal. It will be the site of a new major fish-screening facility to protect a variety of fish which call the Delta home.
The Trinity River Division which includes Trinity and Whiskeytown Dams and which moves water from the Trinity River to the Sacramento River Basin for export to water-deficient areas of the Central Valley.
Folsom Dam and Reservoir on the American River near Sacramento, one of California's most heavily used recreation areas, also provides flood control to the capital as well as water for many uses.
