Title:
Joint Operations Center Relocation Project EIS/EIR
Site: www.usbr.gov/mp/cvo/joc.html
Summary:
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) and the California Department of Water Resources propose to relocate their Joint Operations Center (JOC). Three locations are being considered: a Reclamation-owned property near Nimbus Fish Hatchery, a commercial site on Kilgore Road near Sunrise Boulevard, and a commercial site on the former Mather Air Force Base. The JOC coordinates water supply and flood management operations. The proposed relocation would improve communications and coordination during emergencies such as floods and droughts, accommodating approximately 600 employees. The new facility would house control centers for the State Water Project and the federal Central Valley Project, a flood operations center, backup power supplies, primary and backup communication systems, intense computer infrastructure, physical and cyber security systems and would meet state essential service criteria for an emergency operations center.
