Contra Costa Canal Shut Down Due to Canal Repairs & Annual Cleaning
Portions of Canal Trail from Clyde to Martinez Will Be Closed
The Contra Costa Canal has been shut down for repairs and annual cleaning. We expect the canal to be repaired and back in service by the beginning of the annual irrigation season in April, 2015
CCWD crews started work on Dec. 5, starting at the Naval Weapons Station near Clyde, they are now heading toward Concord.
On Friday, Jan. 16, our crews will be at Willow Pass Road in Concord and will start to temporarily close portions of the Canal Trail.
Since this project started, 188 dump truck loads of mud and muck have been removed from the canal.
The annual cleaning begins at the Naval Weapons Station and will proceed along the Canal Loop through Clyde, Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Martinez.
Portions of the Contra Costa Canal Trail will be closed for this work. Trails users will need to detour around the construction site. We'll provide updates here as the project progresses.
The District schedules its annual cleaning during the winter months when it causes less impact to our customers and the environment.
We apologize for any inconvenience. For more information, contact Oliver Symonds at 925-688-8010 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
