Tracy Fish Collection Facility

The Tracy Fish Collection Facility (TCFC) intercepts fish from the Old River and the C. W. “Bill” Jones Pumping Plant.  The facility, located 2.41 miles upstream from the pumping plant, is vital for the preservation of various delta species as part of the Central Valley Project, Delta Division.

Due to the significant ongoing research at the TFCF, the United States Bureau of Reclamation continues performing the operation & maintenance at the facility and the San Luis & Delta-Mendota Water Authority has a service contract to provide emergency assistance when requested.

The TFCF was primarily built to intercept downstream migrant fish so they are returned to the main delta channel to resume their journey to the ocean.
