For nearly a year, Water Forum stakeholders including PCWA have been actively working with the State Water Resources Control Board and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to negotiate a voluntary agreement (VA) as part of the state’s Bay-Delta Water Quality Control Plan Update process. The Water Forum’s proposed VA would improve conditions for fish in the American River, maintain our region’s water supply reliability and provide additional water to improve the Delta environment.

Now, this proposal is closer to reality as the State Water Board has pledged to consider the VA as an alternative to the conventional regulatory approach. There are still details to be ironed out but the VA approach is expected to provide better conditions for fish in the lower American River in the near- and long-term.
