California Department of Water Resources logo

The nature of the COVID-19 pandemic is rapidly evolving. As individuals, organizations and local governments are focusing their attention on the safety of their communities in response to this health emergency, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) will be extending the scoping period for the Delta Conveyance Project by four weeks. The new deadline for public comment will be at 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 17, 2020.
Please also note that the Stakeholder Engagement Committee meeting scheduled for next week has been cancelled. The Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA) will work to arrange for remote participation for both committee members and the public for future meetings. 
Given the dynamic nature of the situation, DWR will re-evaluate public participation needs frequently and will provide additional updates as new information becomes available.
