San Francisco Water Department is investigating water management policies for Alameda Creek to enhance both water development and fisheries. Preliminary investigations indicate that an existing fishery can be enhanced by changing the method of water deliveries from Calaveras Reservoir. Potential has also been identified for improved water management in the future when current gravel quarry operations in the Sunol Valley are completed and the reclaimed quarries can provide up to 50,000 acre-feet of storage.
