Answering the question - Where does all that water go that's diverted from the Sacramento River at the Sacramento Weir when it's needed? Here's a quick video shot at sunset of the Yolo Bypass between West Sacramento and Davis. The diversion turns the Yolo floodplain into an ocean under Interstate 80 Yolo Causeway. Before a causeway was built, motor travelers between Davis and Sacramento were forced to detour south through Tracy and Stockton when seasonal flooding left the Yolo Bypass basin under water - like you see in the video.
