A letter from Jennifer Pierre, State Water Contractors, to the Council Members, re: SWC's comments on the Draft Program EIR for the proposed amendments to the Delta Levees Investment Strategy, Conveyance, Storage and Operations, and Performance Measures

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)
