Latest draft of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan is to be released December 13
Last Updated: 11/26/2013
The Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) is an effort by the California Department of Water Resources to address longstanding ecosystem degradation and endangered species decline of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The BDCP also includes, as a proposed alternative, the building of two tunnels underneath a large portion of the delta to provide greater water supply reliability to water conveyed south from the northern portion of the state. The City of Roseville of Roseville remains very concerned over how the BDCP could undermine the reliability of water we receive from Folsom Reservoir.
Another draft of the BDCP and its related environmental documents is scheduled to be released for public review by the California Department of Water Resources on Friday, December 13. A 120 day public review period is expected. The BDCP is likely to be over 25,000 pages in length and the City of Roseville is working with its regional partners to undertake a thorough technical review of the document to understand how the BDCP will impact Roseville.
