  • 1. SDCWA Committee Meeting March 28, 2013 1
  • 2. 2 Examples of Master Plans • California Water Plan • Delta Plan • Integrated Regional Water Management Plans BDCP is a Permit Application Process • Delta Conveyance Solution for Water Supply Reliability for SWP/CVP • Mitigation and Habitat Improvements • Incidental Take Coverage under Federal and State ESAs
  • 3. Over 100,000 Acres of Restored and Protected Habitat Monitoring and Adaptive Management 50 Year Ecosystem- Based Plan ESA-HCP NCCPA- NCCP New North Delta Conveyance 3
  • 4. HABITAT RESTORATION WATER FACILITIES & OPERATIONS OTHER STRESSORS 22 Conservation Measures 200 Biological Goals and Objectives for 56 species 11 of which are aquatic species 11 1 10 4
  • 5. 5 Existing Proposal • Conveyance/Operations • Habitat NRDC/SDCWA Alternative Proposal • Conveyance/Operations • Habitat • Delta Levee improvements • South of Delta Storage • Local Water Supply Development Alternatives analysis must identify specific project impacts Expanding permit requirements could affect water supply reliability
  • 6. 6 Central Valley Project Contractors State Water Contractors • MWD is approximately 25% of combined project deliveries • Agriculture is more than 60%
  • 7. 7 • Established 2006 • Scoping meetings to seek study proposals in 2008/09 • Tunnel options suggested • No proposals from SDCWA • First Administrative Draft 2012 • Second Administrative Draft now being released • Administrative draft EIR/EIS under review by federal lead agencies • 15 alternatives being evaluated • 3,000 cfs option IS included
  • 8. 8 • Existing aqueduct capacity - 15,000 cfs • Initial BDCP Steering Committee capacity – 15,000 cfs • 1982 Peripheral Canal - 22,000 cfs • BDCP “Framework Proposal – 9,000 cfs; three intakes • Final size yet to be determined
  • 9. 9 • Must meet needs for 100-200 years • Address climate change and sea level rise • Provide protection from seismic events • Improve water quality • Provide reliability – two tunnel design • “Big gulp, Little sip”
  • 10. 10 Evaluation • 3,000 cfs tunnel option is covered in the BDCP EIR/S • Economic calculations of the cost/benefit of the portfolio proposal will be addressed in Chapter 9 of the BDCP and accompanying documents • Other water use efficiency and supply alternatives (recycling, desalination) are being facilitated in IRWM and regulatory programs Problems • Does not meet long-term needs – reliability for all Delta diversions • Does not meet co-equal goals • Does not address reverse flows and south Delta restrictions • Reduces habitat restoration by 60% • Funding for local water supply projects is not identified
  • 11. 11 Second Administrative Draft • Chapters 1-4 – Released March 14 • Chapters 5-7 – Released March 27 • Chapters 8-12 – Release week of April 22 Public Draft of EIR/S • Release will be July, 2013
