Delta Conveyance Project

Draft Environmental Impact Report (EIR)

To help understand and navigate the Draft EIR, DWR has prepared several informational resources and tools. Items include videos, fact sheets, brochures, flyers and more. This is a good place to start before diving into the contents of the document itself.

Draft EIR Explained

A companion to the Draft EIR to help members of the public better understand the Delta Conveyance Project. It is intended to acquaint readers with the proposed Delta Conveyance Project and alternatives analyzed in the environmental report and provide a short summary of impacts to key resource areas.
