EPA is working with state and federal agencies on development of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) Exit. The BDCP is a habitat conservation plan under the Endangered Species Act intended to address the most critical water issues facing California by constructing new water delivery infrastructure and restoring aquatic habitat. EPA's role is twofold: first, to review and rate the environmental documentation produced for BDCP under the National Environmental Policy Act, and second, to ensure that any necessary CWA permits required for BDCP projects restore water quality and protect aquatic resources.You will need Adobe Reader to view some of the files on this page.
