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)

Public invited to comment on draft environmental review

The Delta Stewardship Council will convene a minimum of two public hearings over the next two months–in addition to accepting written and electronic correspondence–to hear public comment.

While the law requires a 45-day comment period and does not require public hearings, the Council will provide 60 days of review and will hold two in-person, public hearings to discuss the draft EIR on Thursday, Nov. 17, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento, and on Thursday, Dec. 15, from 1:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the California State Capitol, Room 447.

The Council will make a decision on additional hearings at its Nov. 17 meeting. Any additional details will be posted on the Council’s website, at deltacouncil.ca.gov.
