Temporary Diversion Pipeline ProjectDiversion Pipeline Repair

On February 7, erosion caused two water diversion pipelines
at Lago los Osos Pond to break.. This project will use
temporary pumps and pipelines to move water from
Stevenson Pond to Lago los Osos Pond and the Quarry Lakes.
These water diversions are critical during this time of drought.  The temporary diversion system will be in place through spring 2014. 


Project work will take place in Fremont.

Shinn Pond Fish ScreenShinn Pond Fish Screen Photo
This project includes the construction of new diversion pipelines and cylindrical
fish screens that will replace the existing unscreened diversion pipes.  The fish
screen system will consist of several self-cleaning cylindrical screens with a
track system on concrete pads along the bank of the Alameda Creek Flood
Control Channel and will prevent juvenile steelhead trout from being trapped
in Shinn Pond.  The screened diversion facility will be used to divert water from
the ACFCC to Shinn Pond. The project also includes security fencing, controls,
and modification of the trail around the facility.

Location: 
In the City of Fremont, along the north side of the ACFCC upstream 
                of Alameda County Water District Rubber Dam No. 1.  Location Map.

Status:     
The design of the Shinn Pond diversion fish screen facility is
                currently in progress. 

Funding: 
The District received $445,000 in financial support for this project 
                from the California Department of Fish and Game Fisheries 
                Restoration Grant Program.  The grant will also be used for the 
                Kaiser Pond Fish Screen Project.

Rubber Dam No. 1 ReplacementRubber Dam
The Rubber Dam No. 1 Replacement Project will replace the existing
rubber dam and associated support equipment.  The dam is approaching
the end of its useful life and is scheduled to be replaced to maintain
and improve the reliability of our critical water diversions from
Alameda Creek to the Quarry Lakes Recreational Area for
groundwater recharge.  Location Map.

The project will contain the following associated work:
    •  Replacement of the dam rubber membrane element
    •  Replacement or modification of existing dam anchorage
    •  Upgrading or replacement of ancillary equipment required to fill
       and deflate the rubber dam
    •  Incorporate a plunge pool in the dam foundation to protect fish that
       may be transported over the dam by any water that flows over
       the dam
