The Delta Plan

"The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)"

  • The "Plan"
  • California Water Fix Alternative 4A
    This is the latest reincarnation of the BDCP after public comments.State and Federal agencies are proposing a new sub-alternative—Alternative 4A—which would replace Alternative 4 (the proposed Bay Delta Conservation Plan) as the State’s proposed project. Alternative 4A reflects the state’s proposal to separate the conveyance facility and habitat restoration measures into two separate efforts: California WaterFix and California EcoRestore. Watch for he recirculated Draft EIR/Supplemntal EIS on the BDCP website.
