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.
Funding for the study was re-established and
the Aeration Facility will be operated beginning early on the
morning of September 8, 2009 and ending late in the evening of
September 11, 2009. The Aeration Facility will be operated during
the flood portions of the 25- hour tide cycle to evaluate the
effectiveness of injecting higher dissolved oxygen water during
periods of upstream water movement.
