Public Announcement - North Delta Flood Control and Ecosystem Restoration Project Final EIR

The California Department of Water Resources certified the Environmental Impact Report for the North Delta Flood Control and Ecosystem Restoration Project (NDFCERP) on November 3, 2010, and filed a Notice of Determination with the Governor's Office of Planning and Research on November 9, 2010. This Project will implement flood control improvements principally on and around McCormack-Williamson Tract, Dead Horse Island, and Grizzly Slough in a manner that benefits aquatic and terrestrial habitats, species, and ecological processes. Flood control improvements are needed to reduce damage to land uses, infrastructure, and the Bay-Delta ecosystem caused by catastrophic levee failures in the Project study area.

The NDFCERP has been identified by the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan as a priority, early implementation project. The coequal goals of flood protection and ecosystem restoration proposed for the North Delta area with the Project are consistent with the visions of both planning efforts.
