Evolution of a mega project: Update on the Bay Delta Tunnels
Mining Engineering, 2016, Vol. 68, No. 4, pp. 114-114
Water drawn from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta provides water supply to 66 percent of California’s population and supports the state’s agriculture industry. The existing through-Delta water system is outdated and unreliable with environmental risk to some fish and wildlife species.
