The California Department of Water Resources announced major changes in design and location to the conveyance facilities proposed as part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP). These changes reduce the impacts to local communities in the Delta dramatically. An optimization work group with engineers and environmental specialists did extensive outreach to Delta residents in the impacted areas and many of the changes resulted directly from those conversations.
There are also extensive “office hours” planned in libraries thoughout the Delta to answer local resident questions. The complete schedule is available here.
