Fish and Game Releases Delta Restoration Plan

The state Department of Fish and Game has released a conservation strategy to help guide restoration efforts in the Delta, the Sacramento Valley and the San Joaquin Valley.

The "Draft Ecosystem Restoration Program Conservation Strategy” offers guidance for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, aimed at improving water conveyance in the Delta, and the Delta Plan, which seeks to coordinate government actions in the region.

The Fish and Game plan identifies regions most suitable for restoration, suggests what those projects should be, and lays out performance goals to measure success.

Public comments may be submitted by Aug. 22. It is expected to be finalized in December.
