At today’s meeting, the Delta Stewardship Council (Council) will discuss the final staff draft of the Delta Plan, which was released on May 14, 2012. The Delta Plan is a comprehensive, long-term management plan for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (Delta), consisting of a mix of legally-enforceable “policies” and guiding “recommendations.” A comparison of the policies and recommendations contained in the final staff draft of the Delta Plan and the prior version is available here. State and local agencies undertaking actions covered by the Delta Plan will be required to file a certification of consistency with the Council, to ensure that the “covered action” is consistent with the applicable Delta Plan policies.
For more information concerning the Delta Plan, please contact Elizabeth Leeper or the KMTG attorney with whom you normally consult.
