Press release
From Restore the Delta - Thursday, Dec. 6, 2012

Coalition response...BDCP - A 21st Century Strategy was developed by comparing the 1982 proposal with current BDCP efforts and applying updated science and methodologies. Part of that updated science counters the claim by some who continue to argue that fish habitat is dependent solely on increased freshwater flows. Current studies have proven that multiple factors impact the habitat needed by fish, such as the release of ammonia from wastewater discharges into the Sacramento River.  

New regulatory guidelines, including the Natural Community Conservation Planning Act, didn't even exist in 1982 and today it is an important part of the BDCP process. Also, the 1982 proposal focused only on salmon and striped bass while current BDCP efforts identify 214 biological goals and objectives for the Delta ecosystem and native fish and wildlife species, which total 57.

It is imperative that ongoing discussions related to the Delta and California's water issues include facts and not rhetoric. Otherwise, all of California will suffer.
