ACWA Region 4 Tour
C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant:
A Vital Lifeline for Water Supply in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

Limited space available, register today!

Join ACWA Region 4 on a tour filled with insights into the crucial role the C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant plays in supplying water for agricultural, urban, and wildlife needs in the Delta region. Learn how water from northern Central Valley Project reservoirs is expertly routed across the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, touching the Sacramento River, Old River, and natural Delta channels on its journey. Don’t miss the opportunity to witness the sheer power of six pumps, each boasting a colossal 22,500-horsepower electric motor, lifting Delta waters 200 feet from the intake through three discharge pipes. The tour will provide a unique opportunity to understand the critical functions of the C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant and intake channel, which has a remarkable total capacity of about 5,200 cubic feet per second. Learn more about Jones Pumping plant here. The tour’s final destination will be the Bureau of Reclamation Tracy Fish Collection Facility. This facility serves as an essential point where fish from both the old river and the C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant are intercepted. Situated 2.14 miles upstream from the pumping plant, it plays a crucial role in safeguarding diverse delta species. Originally constructed with the main purpose of capturing downstream migrant fish, the Tracy Fish Collection Facility ensures these fish are redirected back to the primary delta channel. This redirection allows them to continue their migration journey towards the ocean.
