The Conservation Strategy is an important component of the 2017 update of the Central Valley Flood Protection Plan. It is an informational document that identifies specific tools and approaches to restore natural areas to benefit fish and wildlife as part of a sustainable flood management plan. Taking an integrated approach increases public benefits for every dollar spent.
The Conservation Strategy and CVFPP as a whole support two of the key actions identified in the California Water Action Plan, in particular increasing flood protection and protecting and restoring important ecosystems.
The 2016 draft is an update to the previously published 2015 version of the Conservation Strategy and Appendices. It includes some revisions based on comments submitted by NGOs, private citizens, and other government agencies.
