Adaptive Management Program: Interagency Implementation & Coordination Group
The Delta Reform Act of 2009 identified adaptive management as the desired approach to reduce the ecological uncertainty associated with the management of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta system.
The Bureau of Reclamation (Reclamation), California Department of Water Resources (DWR), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS), National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS), and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW), collectively the ‘Five Agencies’, are committed to applying the adaptive management approach to improve the Delta and its resources. These five state and federal agencies agree to ongoing adaptive management under the current Biological Opinions of the combined operations of the Central Valley Project (CVP) and State Water Project (SWP), as well as the effects of future operations under California WaterFix (CWF).
The Interagency Implementation and Coordination Group (IICG) as described in the Adaptive Management Program (AMP) and AMP Agreement is co-led by DWR and Reclamation, and will include a representative of Reclamation, USFWS, and NMFS, as well as one designated representative each from DWR, CDFW, a participating SWP contractor, and a participating CVP contractor. Additional staff from any of the IICG members and/or consultants may also provide technical assistance or other support.
