The California Natural Resources Agency released thousands of pages of administrative draft environmental analysis and the preliminary administrative draft of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan today. The release marks a key point in the Bay Delta Conservation Plan process. During the next few months, the administrative draft documents will continue to evolve as the state and federal agencies narrow in on proposed details.


Los Angeles, CA—“After years of planning and research, we’re pleased to see the BDCP begin to take shape. There’s still some heavy lifting ahead as the state and federal agencies continue to develop the BDCP and analyze the thousands of pages of scientific documents, but today represents a noteworthy point in this process. This is one of the most important undertakings in California’s history, and the Southern California Water Committee continues to support the Brown Administration in its efforts to develop a long-term solution for the Delta ecosystem and our water supply.”
