- Collected water from the Mokelumne River
- Also uses Pardee dam water
How does the aqueduct distribute water among different uses and areas? (agriculture, urban, environment?)


Why do some areas get more water from the aqueduct than others?

- Debate is deciding whether the state should increase the distribution of water to its the agricultural and urban sectors

Question 9
What are the environmental impacts of the aqueduct system?

- Had to build three dams so the aqueduct had more water to transport

How did the construction of the aqueduct impact the environment? (what was there before)

- Though the city of San Francisco was paying money to extend another aqueduct, they rearranged part of the city to have the mokelumne aqueduct pass over the San Francisco-San Joaquin Delta

How is the aqueduct affecting the natural environment now? (river flow, animals that live there, fish, etc.)

- Places are not getting the water they need
The drought
Some of the places the aqueduct get’s its water from are losing a lot of water due to the drought

How is the drought affecting the aqueduct?
- Water flow from the Mokelumne through Woodbridge Irrigation District could be cut because the aqueduct is running dry
Are there any plans to change or alter the aqueduct in the future?
- No plans on change or alter
