Project: Sutter Bypass Pumping Plants Control Systems

Description: The Sutter Bypass Pumping Plants Control Systems Upgrade Project is the last phase of the Department of Water Resources (DWR) program to refurbish and modernize pumps at the three DWR pumping plants located along the east levee of the Sutter Bypass. In this phase of the project, the existing non-functioning pump control system will be replaced at each of the three Sutter Bypass Pumping Plants so they can be monitored and operated remotely from the Sutter Maintenance Yard. In addition, a backup generator will be installed at each of the pumping plants to supply emergency power in the event of an electric outage to ensure uninterrupted operation. Completion of this last phase of the Sutter Bypass Plumping Plant Rehabilitation Project will improve the pumps' reliability and efficiency thereby reducing the State's exposure to flood damage liability while lowering operations cost.
