Tracy Fish Collection Facility Fish Monitoring Data

This data summarizes the biological (fish) salvage operations as well as other water quality information from the TFCF from 1981 to date. The Tracy Fish Collection Facility (TFCF) diverts and salvages fish from water exported from the southern portion of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta). After fish are salvaged at the TFCF, the C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant (JPP) pumps water into the Delta Mendota Canal. Both the TFCF and JPP are integral parts of the Central Valley Project (CVP) which provides water for agriculture and municipalities on the western side of the San Joaquin Valley. The fish are loaded into tanker trucks and released into the western Delta away from the immediate influence of the export pump.
