|The state is studying the potential impacts and benefits of two possible routes for a tunnel in the Delta. The proposal aims to protect the reliability of the State Water Project to deliver clean water to homes, farms, and businesses in the Bay Area, Central Coast, and Southern California.|
The project would catch fresh water in the northern Delta – especially during storms – through two new intakes near the town of Hood. A deep underground tunnel would carry that water 40 miles to the southern Delta where it would be pumped into the State Water Project. The project would be constructed over approximately 16 years.
DWR is currently studying potential impacts on traffic, noise, air quality, and historical, cultural, recreational, and other resources.
They have launched the Environmental Justice Community Survey to better understand how the project may affect the resources, values, and priorities that are most important you.
