The Final EIS contains responses to all comments received and reflects comments and any additional information received during the review period.

The purpose of the Proposed Action is to improve the DMC conveyance conditions that restrict the CVP Jones Pumping Plant to less than its authorized pumping capacity of 4,600 cubic feet per second. The Final EIS evaluates four alternatives, including the No Action, Proposed Action (alternative previously analyzed in the Environmental Assessment), an alternative location of the same design, and a temporary structure. The Intertie would be located in an unincorporated area of the San Joaquin Valley in Alameda County, west of the city of Tracy, in a rural agricultural area that is owned by the State and Federal governments. The primary study area includes the Intertie alternative facilities and the associated transmission lines connecting to the Tracy substation, which is located at DMC Milepost 3.5.
