Economic Sustainability Plan

The 2009 Delta Reform Act (Public Resources Code section 29759) requires the Commission to prepare an Economic Sustainability Plan (ESP) for the Delta region. The Commission adopted the ESP in January 2012. It includes information about levees, public safety, and the Department of Water Resources’ flood management plan for the Delta. The Commission used the ESP to develop a set of recommendations that informed the Delta Stewardship Council’s Delta Plan policies concerning the socioeconomic sustainability of the Delta region.

Currently, the Commission is working to update two chapters of the ESP, gathering the most current data on agriculture and recreation. Documents will be posted as they are completed.
