Administrative Record for the Bay-Delta Programmatic EIR/EIS Cases


The documents contained in this database comprise the administrative record for the Resources Agency's certification of the CALFED Programmatic Environmental Impact Statement/Environmental Impact Report on August 28, 2000, pursuant to the California Environmental Quality Act.  The Resources Agency lodged this administrative record with the Superior Court of Sacramento County as part of the litigation challenging that decision, titled the Bay-Delta Programmatic EIR Cases.

 In particular, this record encompasses (a) development of the long-term Plan for the Bay-Delta (commenced in May, 1995); and (b) development of the Programmatic EIS/EIR on the long-term Plan certified by the Resources Agency on August 28, 2000. The record includes relevant documents from the interagency staff team that prepared the Programmatic EIS/EIR, files of the CALFED Bay-Delta Program staff and files of the State CALFED agencies.  This record does not include documents held in the files of the Federal CALFED agencies that were not transmitted to and retained by the interagency staff team, CALFED Bay-Delta Program staff or a State CALFED Agency.
