Manteca's storm system — that for the most part has been working flawlessly for years — could be expanded to make sure new growth doesn't create problems. The city has been working with the South San Joaquin Irrigation District to make sure that storm run-off being sent into the drainage canal along the Union Pacific tracks separating Manteca from Lathrop and flows north into the French Camp Slough and ultimately the San Joaquin River will be able to accommodate growth. Manteca is also working with Oakwood Lake Shores — the gated 480-home community built where the Manteca  Waterslides once stood — to see if future storm run-off as southwest Manteca develops could be sent to the river around the gated community's lakes and into the San Joaquin River.
