Contra Costa Canal Shut Down Due to Canal Repairs & Annual Cleaning
Portions of Canal Trail from First Ave. to Oak Park Blvd. in Walnut Creek is closed this week
Updated Feb. 21, 2013
The Contra Costa Canal was shut down in early December for repairs and annual cleaning.
The earlier-than-normal shutdown was caused by a landslide adjacent to the canal in the Pacheco area. We expect the canal to be repaired and back in service by the beginning of the annual irrigation season in April.
The annual cleaning began at the Naval Weapons Station and will proceed along the Canal Loop through Clyde, Concord, Walnut Creek, Pleasant Hill and Martinez.
of the Contra Costa Canal Trail are closed for this work. This week, portions of the canal trail will be closed between First Ave. and Oak Park Blvd. in Walnut Creek.
Trails users will need to detour around the construction site. We'll provide updates 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 Gina Oltman at (925) 688-8010 or email@example.com .
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
