The CALFED preferred conveyance canal/tunnel appears almost
completed to divert Sacramento River water, but the required restoration
projects, and even a plan, and not complete.
The process by which Federal and State agency representatives jointly
planned the actions necessary to divert more water away from the Delta.
CalFed has a "conveyance" focus and a "restoration" focus. The "central
conveyance" plan from 2000 has almost been completely built in
sections, as regional or local projects, up to and including action in
2011. There is still no approved "restoration" plan, nor confirmed
funding for restoration. CalFed restoration process is called the
Bay-Delta Conservation Plan.
