Roseville recognizes that the Bay Delta Conservation Plan's goals of water supply reliability and ecosystem restoration are important to the states future. We know that without a healthy Delta, the water supply for two-thirds of the state will be in jeopardy, but we need to make sure the other one-third of the state isn't left out of the mix. As the city examines the 34,000-page Delta water study, were looking to see if the state answers our most pressing question: Is there an operations plan for the BDCP? We're hoping that the state has identified how it will manage export and environmental water needs while ensuring our region's water supplies remain reliable. Answering this question in a meaningful, unequivocal answer way will alleviate some concerns from our region and help create a truly statewide plan.
