Document Description
SJRRP will implement the Stipulation of Settlement (Settlement) in NRDC et al. v. Kirk Rodgers et al., consistent with the San Joaquin River Restoration Settlement Act (Act) (Public Law 111-11). The Settlement and the Act authorize and direct specific physical and operational actions (such as flow releases, channel/bypass modifications, salmon reintroduction, fish screens, etc.) consistent with the Restoration and Water Management goals of the SJRRP. All project-level actions addressed in this PEIS/R (release, conveyance, and recapture of Interim and Restoration flows; related monitoring and management actions; and conservation measures.) will be undertaken by reclamation, and the effects of these actions are the sole responsibility of Reclamation. DWR serves as the CEQA lead agency for the SJRRP, although DWR is not taking any discretionary action for the project-level actions analyzed in the PEIS/R.
