Maps & documents showing Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) and other "Restoration" proposals for the Delta

     The maps below come from the thousands of pages of studies and reports describing different ways that are proposed to "restore" the Delta.  Not a single one of the plans actually calls for restoration to fresh water marsh and natural islands which collects all the snow and rain runoff from the Sierras', as it did in the 1840's before California became a state.  What is being proposed is a REVISION of the 500,000 acres of prime Delta farm land and recreation waterways into a vast ecological experiment where a fresh water inland Delta will be at least partially converted into a saltwater "estuary".  Why?  Because developers from outside the Delta area want more Delta water for future developments they plan in Oakland along the waterfront and University Avenue, in Contra Costa County, in Irvine, San Bernardino, Napa, Monterey, Sacramento County.  The Developers need to prove their source for "new water" before they can get approval for their new residential and commercial developments.  The problem is that many fish species are declining because to much Delta water is already being taken out.  The BDCP is supposed to be a plan where more water is taken out of the Delta through new "conveyance" alternatives, while at the same time it revises the Delta's ecological freshwater environment into a new saltwater or brackish estuary-experiment.
     To the left you will note links to documents by year.  If you want to see the documents where the maps below were found, go to those links or the online references that show on the maps if you click the individual maps to see enlarged versions.
