Sacramento Valley water suppliers are committed to the development of a comprehensive plan for the management of water resources that satisfies the co-equal goals of water supply reliability and ecosystem benefits. A priority for that plan is improving conditions for fish and birds, which is best achieved by providing functional and targeted flows that are designed and tailored to restore natural flow functions and the benefits of the interaction between water, sun and the landscape, while balancing the benefits of our flood control and water supply system. This includes existing instream flow arrangements for salmon, as well as spreading water out and slowing it down over the Sacramento Valley landscape for both economic purposes and for returning fish and birds to habitats that more closely match their natural history. This will ultimately benefit the Sacramento Valley and the Delta.
