Document Description
DWR is pursuing the development of Alternative 1-A of Group I (the No Action Alternative is the Preferred Alternative for Group II) of the North Delta Flood Control and Ecosystem Project to achieve flood control, ecosystem restoration, and recreational benefits in the North Delta area (Sacramento and San Joaquin counties). In broad terms, Alternative 1-A of the Project is intended to meet equal flood control and ecosystem restoration purposes and objectives by minimizing the surge effect across McCormack-Williamson Tract and providing additional capacity in the project area to minimize the potential for catastrophic flooding, while substantially increasing opportunities for habitat and ecological processes.
