The following report on the Aeration Facility Project is for your information.  This report will be transmitted whenever changes occur to the operation of the aeration facility, and as a result of data monitoring of dissolved oxygen in the Stockton Deep Water Ship Channel.

Aeration Facility Weekly Update for June 27, 2008


As a part of ongoing pulse tests, the Aeration Facility was turned on Monday, June 23, 2008 at about 9:45 a.m.  The system was operated at full capacity with oxygenated water with a dissolved oxygen (DO) level in the upper 30 mg/l range.  Water was discharged into the Stockton Deep Water Ship Channel (DWSC) for four full days ending Friday, June 27, 2008 at about 10:00 a.m.  The system will be off for the next three days and will be turned back on Monday, June 30, 2008 at about 9:00 a.m.  Below is a draft plot of the DO readings from the Rough and Ready Island station during June 2008.  As we compile and analyze data from the four additional DO sensors in the DWSC we will share that information in future updates.
