ISSUES AND OTHER INFORMATION

  • The ship channel is an integral component of the California Bay Delta ecosystem and supports the Port of West Sacramento which is a vital link to California’s agriculture industry.  The latest commercial tonnage of goods shipped through the harbor is 260,000 tons. The only U.S. Coast Guard station in the California Bay Delta is located along the channel.  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.
