An amendment to Chapter 4 of the Delta Plan (Protect, Restore, and Enhance the Delta Ecosystem) is currently under consideration by the Delta Stewardship Council (Council), to address a fundamental shift in how conservation is being planned and implemented in the Delta.
A preliminary public review draft of Chapter 4 was developed based on robust stakeholder engagement and scientific synthesis. It provides a brief history of the Delta ecosystem, describes current conditions in the estuary, and presents five core strategies that form the basis for the policies and recommendations pertinent to the coequal goal of protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem.
The public comment period on draft Chapter 4 has been extended from forty-five (45) to sixty (60) days, from November 22, 2019 to January 21, 2020. Any agency, organization, or member of the public may submit written comments relevant to the proposed amendment no later than 5:00 PM January 21, 2020 by the following methods:
• by email to email@example.com; or
• by mail to Ecosystem Amendment, Delta Stewardship Council, 980 Ninth Street, Suite 1500, Sacramento, CA 95814.
