Notice is hereby given that the Delta Stewardship Council (Council) will prepare a Program Environmental Impact Report (PEIR) for the proposed Delta Plan Ecosystem Amendment (Proposed Project or Proposed Ecosystem Amendment), and will hold a public scoping meeting to receive comments on the scope of the PEIR, as detailed below. Consistent with California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA) Guidelines section 15206, the Proposed Project is considered a project of statewide, regional, or areawide significance. The Council, as the lead agency, determined that the Proposed Ecosystem Amendment may result in potentially significant environmental impacts, and that a PEIR is required.
The Council is proposing to amend Chapter 4 of the Delta Plan (Protect, Restore, and Enhance the Delta) to address the State and federal agencies' shift from the Bay Delta Conservation Plan to EcoRestore and provide a more comprehensive approach to ecosystem protection, restoration, and enhancement in the Delta, as required to achieve the goals and strategies described in the Delta Reform Act.
The Proposed Ecosystem Amendment consists of:
-Chapter 4 narrative, which include new and revised policies and recommendations';
-Three regulatory appendices (Appendices 3A and 4A and New Definitions; and Appendix 8A);
-Four technical appendices (Appendix Q1-Q4); and
-An appendix containing new and revised ecosystem performance measures pertinent to the coequal goal of protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem (Appendix E).
