Folsom South Canal Connection

The Folsom South Canal Connection (FSCC) project is a portion of the overall Freeport Regional Water Project (FRWP). The FRWP diverts water from the Sacramento River at Freeport and pumps it to the Folsom South Canal (FSC) for water deliveries to the District and to the new Vineyard Surface Water Treatment Plant in the vicinity of Florin and Vineyard Roads for water deliveries to the Sacramento County Water Agency (SCWA). SCWA will treat and distribute the water within its service area. East Bay Municipal Utility District (EBMUD) deliveries will flow south in the FSC to the canal terminus and will be subsequently conveyed by the FSCC project facilities to the Mokelumne Aqueducts for transmission into the District’s service area.

The FSCC project is underway and will continue from Fall 2007 through Fall 2009. While the majority of construction will be completed in 2009, actual project integration and completion is expected in Summer 2010.

When completed, the project will deliver water to the Mokelumne Aqueducts in San Joaquin County where it will continue on its journey to EBMUD’s service area in the East Bay. The water will be delivered only during droughts, which on average occur three out of every ten years.
