ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The ship channel is an integral component of the California Bay Delta ecosystem and supports the Port of Stockton, which is the largest inland and fourth busiest port in California.  Approximately 30 cargo vessels pass through the channel each month, taking more than 1,000,000 trucks off area roads annually. The latest commercial tonnage shipped through the project is 5,000,000 tons.  The port is a vital link to the agricultural industry of the California Central Valley, handling more than 90-percent of fertilizer used by the regions growers and over 50-percent of California’s bagged rice to Japan.  Overall responsibility for the project was transferred to San Francisco District effective in FY 2015, although levee maintenance will continue to be managed by Sacramento District.
