Large Owner Axis Exchange Authority

The Large Owner Axis Exchange Authority would coordinate development along the north-south axis of the Delta.

The LOA spans 30 miles between the two key elements of the Delta’s water distribution infrastructure. It is comprised of seven islands totaling approximately 70,000 acres. Its unique geography may or may not ultimately make it a conduit for freshwater delivery from the north.

Today, while the total population living on the Large Owner Axis lands is less than 500 persons, these islands, and the waterways that border them, are home to many important recreational practices, farm settlements, and points of historical interest. The perimeter of these islands will become a new recreational space tied together by a system of cable and reaction ferries, lodgecamps, and washout camps.

The LOA is also the key axis of planned “through-Delta” water redistribution infrastructure proposals, whether or not these improvements are tied to the new Peripheral Canal proposal.

The Large Owner Axis Trail is correlated to the 2009 Peripheral Canal proposal’s “through-Delta component. The trail extends from the proposed Sacramento River diversion facility in the North Delta to the State and Federal Water Project pumps in the southwest Delta. From north to south, the elements of the trail system include: Stone Lakes NWR Trail, Snodgrass Slough Lodgecamp, Pear and Vine Trail, Delta Cross Channel Lodgecamp, Historic Settlements Trail, Staten Island Lodgecamp, Birdwatchers’ and Sportsmens’ Trail, Bouldin Island Lodgecamp, Habitat Mitigation Trail, Connection Slough Anglers’ Dam, Bacon Island Lodgecamp, Railroad Cut Anglers’ Dam, Channel Islands Trail, Double Canal Anglers’ Dam, Victoria and North Canals Estate Trail, and Clifton Court Forebay Lodgecamp

My brother Adam brought this interesting and curiosity-piquing place to my attention. Is this strange configuration a message being sent to outer space, or explained by more earthbound practices? Please help solve the mystery!
