Bay Delta Conservation Plan Hits Critical Milestone

CA Natural Resources Agency Releases Preliminary Administrative Drafts of BDCP Planning Documents

Sacramento, CA—The California Natural Resources Agency today released the preliminary administrative drafts of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and the accompanying environmental review documents, which include the most comprehensive scientific analysis and review to date of the proposed plan alternatives.  

 The documents, while still a work in progress, represent more than 300 public meetings and six years of rigorous and thorough scientific studies on efforts to restore the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta (Delta).

“There’s still a good deal of work to be done, but we’ve hit a critical juncture today,” said Terry Erlewine, general manager of the State Water Contractors. “This is by far the most comprehensive analysis of how to best manage the Delta and it’s fairly remarkable how much we’ve learned during the past six years. Our public water agencies have remained committed to this process from the very beginning, and look forward to these final stages where decisions will be made.”

The documents released today analyze the significant habitat conservation measures under consideration, along with several alternatives for conveying water to the 25 million people in Northern, Central and Southern California that currently rely on water shipped through the Delta.
