IMPROVEMENT OF RIVERS AND HARBORS IN THE

SACRAMENTO, CALIF., DISTRICT This district comprises southern central Oregon, northwestern Nevada, and northwestern and central California embraced in the northern half of the great basin draining toward central Nevada, and the drainage basins of Suisun Bay, the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, and their tributaries, and since September 30, 1943, has included also the area of the former Salt Lake City, Utah, district, namely, a portion of northeastern and central Nevada, all of Utah except the northwestern tip and the southern portion, part of southeastern Idaho, southwestern Wyoming, and the major portion of western Colorado, embraced in the northern portion of the great basin including the Great Salt Lake Basin, and the minor basin between that basin and the Humboldt River Basin.

District engineers: Col. R. C. Hunter, Corps of Engineers, to December 26, 1944; Head Engineer Henry M. Rich, acting district engineer, December 27, 1944, to February 28, 1945; Col. Lester F. Rhodes, Corps of Engineers, since that date.

1. SAN JOAQUIN RIVER, CALIF. Location.-San Joaquin River rises in the Sierra Nevada and flows 317 miles westerly and northerly to Suisun Bay.

Existing project. This provides for a channel 30 feet deep at mean lower low water and for channel-bottom widths of 400 feet below Criminal Point and 225 feet above that point, from the mouth of New York Slough to Mormon Channel at Stockton, a distance of 41 miles (suitably widened at bends and at the entrances to New York Slough and to channels through shoals, with levees set back 230 feet from the center of the channel); for a channel 26 feet deep and 100 feet wide, thence to Edison Street three-fourths miles; for a 9-foot depth, thence to the head of navigation at El Dorado Street, one-half mile; for a 9-foot depth in Fremont Channel and McLeod Lake, arms of Stockton Channel; and for a channel 9 feet deep and 100 feet wide in Mormon Channel from its mouth to Center Street, head of navigation, 1.7 miles. It also provides for suitable passing basins and a turning basin at Stockton; for a triangular-shaped settling basin 30 feet deep and average side length of about 1,000 feet in the San Joaquin River just above its junction with the Stockton deep-water channel and a second settling basin 30 feet deep, 1,200 feet long, and 100 feet wide, adjoining the deep-water channel at the mouth of Calaveras River; for the reconstruction to grade and section of approximately 4,000 feet of levee along the north side of Venice Island Cut, and the setting back of levees where required for the channel improvements; for cutting off sharp bends and making cut-offs in the river; for partial closing of side channels at Laird Slough and Paradise Cut by weirs to confine the low-water flow to one main channel; and for snagging, removing overhanging trees, and constructing brush wing dams from the mouth of Stockton Channel to Hills Ferry, 86 miles, to facilitate light-draft navigation on this part of the river during higher stages of water. The following table shows the tide and flood conditions prevailing:

The estimate of cost for new work, revised in 1945, is $4,011,000. This amount does not include $1,307,500 contributed by local interests toward the cost of dredging. The latest (1937) approved estimate of annual cost of maintenance is $181,000 during the first year and $111,000 annually thereafter.

The existing project was authorized by the following river and harbor acts:
