DWR is committed to following scientifically-recognized best practices as it works on the 2017 update of the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan. It includes a Conservation Strategy that provides a comprehensive, long term approach to improving riverine habitat and floodplains as part of an integrated flood management plan.

The Conservation Strategy includes:

  • up-to-date science and planning information.

  • a regional permitting approach.

  • a comprehensive and science-based approach to vegetation management.

  • clear ecological targets with measurable objectives.

The 2016 Draft Conservation Strategy is available now.
