Scoping Meetings


The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation (USBR) are proposing the South Delta Improvements Program (SDIP). The project would increase the maximum allowable diversion capacity at the State Water Project’s (SWP’s) Clifton Court Forebay, provide an adequate water supply for South Delta Water Agency (SDWA) and improve conditions for San Joaquin River salmon in the southern portion of the Sacramento–San Joaquin Delta (Delta) in portions of San Joaquin and Contra Costa counties.

DWR, acting as lead agency under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA), and USBR, as lead agency under the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA), have determined that an environmental impact report/environmental impact statement (EIR/EIS) will be prepared. Responsible and trustee agencies under CEQA may include the California Department of Fish and Game (DFG), Central Valley Flood Protection Board, State Lands Commission, California Regional Water Quality Control Boards, and the State Water Resources Control Board.

DWR and USBR need to know your views regarding the scope and content of the environmental information in connection with the proposed SDIP. Please submit your response to DWR at the earliest possible date, but not later than October 31, 2002. The public scoping meeting summaries and written comments already received are available. Responses should be sent to:
