The Project is Phase 5 of a larger project that will replace 21,000 feet of the unlined Contra Costa Canal with a pipeline to improve source water quality available to the CCWD by preventing intrusion of poor quality groundwater. Phase 5 will install: a) 4,000 feet of pipeline to replace an unlined canal and levees and b) a flood isolation structure to prevent breach or inflow of poor quality water in case of a Delta levee failure.
