Abstract: Moving water into and out of the Eastside Reservoir, which will be the largest body of freshwater in southern California, requires some of the largest pumping and water conveyance systems built in the state. The hydraulic structures include a 260 ft (79 m) high inlet/outlet (I/O) tower, a 193.5 in. (4,800 mm) diameter pressure tunnel, a pumping plant, a 500 acre-ft (616,750 m³) forebay, the Eastside Pipeline, and a secondary inlet.
