Description
Sacramento River Division (CVP), Sacramento Canals Unit - CA The Sacramento Canals Unit of the Central Valley Project was designed to provide irrigation water in the Sacramento Valley, principally in Tehama, Glenn, and Colusa Counties. Authorized in 1950, the unit consists of Red Bluff Diversion Dam, Funks Dam, Corning Pumping Plant, Tehama-Colusa Canal, and Corning Canal. At the upper end of the Tehama-Colusa Canal are the Tehama-Colusa Fish Facilities, which Reclamation constructed and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) operates. Full and supplemental irrigation service is provided to about 98,000 acres. In 1963, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers finished building Black Butte Dam as a separate project. The Black Butte Integration Act of October 23, 1970, brought Black Butte Dam and Reservoir under the auspices of the Sacramento River Division as the Black Butte Unit.

Safety of Dams Program Welcome to the Mid-Pacific Region Safety of Dams (SOD) Program Homepage. The Dam Safety Home Page provides you with a diverse amount of dam safety and dam safety-related information.
San Felipe Division (CVP), CA The San Felipe Division of the Central Valley Project, in the central coastal area of California, embraces the Santa Clara Valley in Santa Clara County, the northern portion of San Benito County, the southern portion of Santa Cruz County, and the northern edge of Monterey county. Authorized in 1960, the division provides supplemental water to 63,500 acres of land, in addition to 132,400 acre-feet of water annually for municipal and industrial use. Water from San Luis Reservoir is transported to the Santa Clara-San Benito service area through Pacheco Tunnel and other project features which include 48.5 miles of closed conduits, two pumping plants, and one small reservoir. Provisions for future construction of about 25 miles of closed conduit to Santa Cruz and Monterey counties are included in the division features.

San Joaquin River Restoration Program The San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP) is a comprehensive long-term effort to restore flows to the San Joaquin River from Friant Dam to the confluence of Merced River, ensure irrigation supplies to Friant Water users, and restore a self-sustaining fishery in the river.
San Joaquin River Riparian Habitat Restoration Program San Joaquin River Riparian Habitat Restoration Program - Since 1997, the San Joaquin River Riparian Habitat Program (SJRRHRP) has focused on: (a) bringing together diverse interest groups to promote the development of consensus based riparian restoration (b) funding or supporting various restoration programs, activities, and efforts beneficial to the restoration of the San Joaquin River. This effort falls under the purview of the Central Valley Project Improvement Act (CVPIA) established in 1992.
San Luis Drainage San Luis Drainage Feature Re-evaluation and EIS - The Bureau of Reclamation is re-evaluating options for providing drainage service to the San Luis Unit of the Central Valley Project. Proposed drainage service alternatives will be selected that maintain environmental quality and provide for continued agricultural production in a manner consistent with the Plan of Action (adobe formatted) filed April 18, 2001, in Sumner Peck Ranch, Inc., et al., v. Bureau of Reclamation, et al. A Notice of Intent to prepare an Environmental Impact Statement (EIS), pursuit to the National Environmental Policy Act, was published in the Federal Register on Tuesday, October 2, 2001.

In Public Law (PL) 108 361, Section 103(f)(1)(A), the Secretary of the Interior was authorized to conduct feasibility studies of San Luis Reservoir.
Semitropic Stored Water Recovery UnitSpecial Study Report In November 2007, Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation) completed this Special Study to determine if a potential Federal interest exists in participating in the Stored Water Recovery Unit (SWRU) project of the Semitropic Water Storage District (Semitropic).
Shasta Lake Water Resources Investigation (SLWRI) Shasta Lake Water Resources Investigation (SLWRI) Mission Statement: To develop an implementable plan primarily involving the enlargement of Shasta Dam and Reservoir to promote increased survival of anadromous fish populations in the upper Sacramento River; increased water supply reliability; and to the extent possible through meeting these objectives, include features to benefit other identified ecosystem, flood control, and water resources needs.
Shasta National Rec Area Shasta Dam and reservoir are features of the Central Valley Project - Shasta/Trinity Divisions. Recreation at the reservoir is managed by the U.S. Forest Service under agreement with the Bureau of Reclamation, Northern California Area Office. Created by a dam across the Sacramento River, Shasta Reservoir is the largest reservoir in California with 370 miles of shoreline. Located 12 miles north of Redding, the reservoir provides excellent year-round bank or boat fishing.

State Water Contractors SWC The State Water Contractors is a non-profit association of 27 public agencies from Northern, Central and Southern California that purchase water under contract from the California State Water Project. Collectively, the State Water Contractors deliver water to more than 25 million residents throughout the state and more than 750,000 acres of agricultural lands.
Stony Gorge Modification Stony Gorge Dam is located about 18 miles downstream from East Park Dam on Stony Creek and about 25 miles west of the town of Willows. Studies ongoing since 2001 indicated that a large earthquake could cause the vertical concrete buttresses that support the dam to buckle, possibly leading to subsequent dam leakage or collapse. Construction of the structural modifications is scheduled to begin in late 2006 and will take about 3 years to complete. The dam modifications will consist of building a concrete wall and additional supports between the vertical buttresses to provide increased stability to them during an earthquake.
Sugar Pine Recreation at Sugar Pine Reservoir is managed by Tahoe National Forest under an agreement with the Bureau of Reclamation. Sugar Pine Reservoir was created by Sugar Pine Dam across Shirttail Creek. The dam is a feature of the Central Valley project, American River Division, Folsom Auburn Unit.
