Public Review (Closed July 29, 2014)

The Draft BDCP and BDCP Draft EIR/EIS were made available to the public for a 228-day review period. The public review and comment period was effective December 13, 2013 through July 29, 2014.

On August 27, 2014 the Department of Water Resources and the other state and federal agencies leading the Bay Delta Conservation Plan announced that they will publish a partially Recirculated Draft BDCP, Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS), and Implementing Agreement (IA) in early 2015.  The agencies are currently reviewing the comments received through the public comment period that ended on July 29, 2014.  The recirculated documents will include those portions of each document that warrant another public review prior to publication of final documents.  The public will also have the opportunity to review the final documents prior to their adoption and any decisions about the proposed actions.

The Draft BDCP and BDCP Draft EIR/EIS were made available to the public in accordance with the California Natural Community Conservation Planning Act (NCCPA), Section 10 of the federal Endangered Species Act (ESA), the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA,) and the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) for a 228-day review period. 

The public comment period is now closed. The public review Draft documents remain available online at the links below. If you would like to request a dvd copy of the documents please email a request to BDCP.comments@noaa.gov.

Comments received electronically or postmarked on or before July 29, 2014 will be considered by state and federal agencies and responses to substantive comments will be included in the Final EIR/EIS.
