Released On: June 21, 2012
WALNUT GROVE, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation announced today that the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Cross Channel gates were repaired and reopened, following their closure due to a mechanical problem that occurred on May 29, 2012. The gates will remain open until further notice.
The Delta Cross Channel, a feature of Reclamation’s Central Valley Project Delta Division, is used to divert Sacramento River water into a branch of the Mokelumne River. The Delta Cross Channel gates are normally raised on weekends to allow for the passage of boats.
