Tracy Fish Collection Facility Improvement - The Tracy Fish Collection Facility (TFCF) is a complex system of louvers, bypasses and holding tanks operated to protect and salvage fish from the nearby C.W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant. The facility collects Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta fish species as a primary mitigation feature for the pumping plant and returns them to the Delta. Reclamation awarded a $4.27 million contract to improve operations and protection of the fish and the work was recently completed at the facility. http://www.usbr.gov/main/docs/Tracy_Fish_Monitoring.pdf
