Delta Stewardship Council Will Consider Proposed Final Draft Of Delta Plan

The Delta Stewardship Council (Council) will consider the proposed final draft of the Delta Plan at its September 13, 2012, meeting. The Delta Plan is a comprehensive, long-term management plan for the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (Delta), consisting of a mix of legally-enforceable “policies” and guiding “recommendations.” State and local agencies undertaking actions covered by the Delta Plan will be required to file a certification of consistency with the Council, to ensure that the “covered action” is consistent with the applicable Delta Plan policies.
