Abstract : The project would divert Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta water from one of three locations in eastern Solano County overland by pipeline and aqueduct to tie into Phase I aqueduct facilities near Cordelia, California. Environmental impacts include possible disruption of biological habitats in the Jepson Prairie and Suisun Marsh that support threatened and endangered plant and animal species; disruption and/or encroachment on prime farmland; temporary disruption of the Fairfield linear park system; possible growth-inducing impacts; consumption of large amounts of energy for construction and during operation and maintenance of the aqueduct; increased noise and dust levels due to construction; generation of large amounts of dredged material from maintenance dredging of intake channels; provision of supplemental water supplies to Solano and Napa Countries. Alternate sources of water include conservation; alternate alignments; and no project. (Author)
