by Chuck Bucaria

The NCCFFF has suggested a Preliminary Stratigic Plan for the Smith River to the State Fish and Game Commission. Read our document here

Tuesday night, January 25, 2011, an historic event happened.  A coalition of 30 environmental, environmental justice and fishing groups delivered to a state agency, The Delta Stewardship Council, a consensus document designed to begin to heal our S.F. Bay-Delta watershed and its fisheries, and also provide a pathway for California to have water system reliability.

The NCCFFF has been a driving force in this process for more than a year through helping to write a foundational report,California Water Solutions Now,reaching out to the Delta Stewardship Council, beginning a small group of individuals to plan a process for input to the council, and finally the arduous work of creating a consensus document for submission.   These are recommendations on the Environmental Impact Report for the Delta Plan.  Our document can be viewed at:  http://www.ewccalifornia.org/reports/DeltaPlanScopingDocs.pdf
