DWR and coordinating partner agencies released a progress report on the implementation of Assembly Bill 1755, the Open and Transparent Water Data Act.
The Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA) has been formed as a Joint Powers Authority by the participating public water agencies. It will be charged with final design and construction of WaterFix facilities, under the oversight of DWR.
Final permitting for WaterFix is on the horizon and implementation is imminent. To embark on this important next step, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) will adjust its organizational structure to ensure an efficient and effective construction program that protects the State's interests by managing risk and controlling costs.
Construction on the main spillway resumes at 12:01 a.m., May 8. Crews will begin removing the temporary RCC walls in the middle section of the main spillway in order to place structural concrete walls later in the year.
