Organization Name

Start date
3/07/2019
Brief course description

The Yolo Bypass is central, both geographically and in importance, to California’s water supply and flood protection system. However, proposed modifications to the Yolo Bypass to enhance habitat for out migrating endangered winter and spring-run young salmon means the Yolo Bypass will be key to the continued pumping of water south for agriculture and urban users. Pete will dive into the existing biological opinion for salmon, describing what it means for the current operations of the pumps of both state and federal water projects. Take a look at the now century-old role that the Bypass plays in the flood protection system for the Central Valley and particularly for safeguarding the State Capitol. Pete will take us on a journey of the Yolo Bypass of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
