BDCP Progress in Achieving the Co-Equal Goals

Complex projects like the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) take time. Each methodical step forward over the past seven years has resulted in a better project, rooted in the best available science. The changes to the BDCP have strived to minimize impacts wherever possible while meeting the project’s purpose. Since 2012 the BDCP has made significant strides and, as a result of an unprecedented level of public review and comment, has resulted in a better and more refined project. The graphic timeline shown on the right provides a snapshot of the significant progress that has been made in the last two years alone.
The forward momentum to prepare a comprehensive plan to addresses water supply reliability and the needs of the Delta ecosystem is continuing. Right now state and federal agencies are reviewing thousands of public comments, many of which will be addressed in a Partial Recirculation of the Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR)/Supplemental Draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) expected for release in 2015. The scope of the recirculation will be announced later this fall and is expected to include refinements to some resource area chapters of the Draft EIR/EIS as well as design refinements to the proposed water facilities. More information on what’s next in the BDCP progress will be available in the coming weeks.
