Metropolitan Water District and WestSide Water District will get the water and it will be delivered by the peripheral canal. The Sacramento River will be the conveyance system and will see flows at two times the normal rate. This will return the flow into the delta to double what it has been to satisfy those requirements. The other half of the flow from the river will be diverted to the peripheral canal for pumping at the Tracy pumping plant.
Between Rio Vista and Red Bluff the Sacramento River is going to be flowing at flood stage levels all year long to maintain delivery requirements. This will result in massive seepage problems for the cities, homeowners and farms along the Sacramento River.
Jerry Brown and Ron Robbie proposed emminant domaine actions to turn the new formed wetlands into the Sacramento River Parkway. 200 square miles of farmland turned to swamp.
