YOUR INPUT WANTED: Draft Conservation Strategy Available for Public Review

From the Department of Water Resources:

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has prepared the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan (CVFPP) Conservation Strategy 2022 Update Public Draft for public review and comment. The Conservation Strategy is an integral component of the 2022 CVFPP Update. Its purpose is to provide actionable and measurable targets to improve riverine, aquatic, wetland, and riparian habitat in the flood system through the integration of ecological principles with flood risk reduction projects, operation and maintenance activities, institutional support, and other means (e.g., the removal of fish passage barriers). The Conservation Strategy also provides data, information, and guidance to floodplain managers to assist in the development of multi-benefit flood infrastructure improvement projects by integrating project components and management strategies that benefit native species and their habitats.

The draft document is now available on DWR’s website at: https://water.ca.gov/Programs/Flood-Management/Flood-Planning-and-Studies/Conservation-Strategy.

There will be a 60-day review period for the Draft Conservation Strategy; as such, DWR will be accepting comments until February 10, 2022.
