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.
The Aeration Facility was planned to be operated for a one week period from Monday, October 12, 2009 through Monday, October 19, 2009 during low flow conditions. Due to power failures that interrupted operations on the second and fourth test days, further testing was cancelled and rescheduled for the following week. The week long testing occurred from Monday, October 19, 2009 through Monday, October 26, 2009. Additional profiling of the oxygen distribution also took place.
