CEQA Process

Part 4 of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Reform Act of 2009 describes the responsibilities of the Delta Stewardship Council (Council) with respect to the development of the Delta Plan. This responsibility is achieved in part with the creation of a Programmatic Environmental Impact Report (PEIR), which must be completed on the Delta Plan to fulfill the requirements of the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA).

Listed below are the various milestones the Council is charged with, along with the target dates for each accomplishment. Once a document or meeting is ready for review each of the listings will become active and link to that respective item.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
