DWR is pursuing a new environmental planning process under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) and will seek new environmental permits for a single tunnel solution to modernize Delta conveyance. DWR will develop a Notice of Preparation (NOP) under CEQA to begin a new transparent environmental review process in compliance with CEQA. The NOP will emphasize proposals to address climate change resiliency and protect the State Water Project Delta conveyance from earthquake risk, in consideration of a one tunnel conveyance facility consistent with Governor Newsom's Executive Order N-10-19.
