Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today issued a statement in response to state and federal updates on progress toward finalizing the Bay Delta Conservation Plan.

          Following is Senator Feinstein's statement:

“State and federal agencies today announced the progress they have made on completing the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and reaffirmed their commitment to securing California’s water supply and restoring the Delta ecosystem.

It’s vital that local, state and federal agencies continue to work together closely, as there is now a clear consensus that the status quo is unsustainable. Levee failures, earthquake risk, invasive species, predators, toxics and pollution are all clearly adding to the deterioration of the ecosystem and threaten the water supply for our agricultural economy and southern cities.

I will continue to monitor this process closely because I believe it is the best chance for California’s future.”
