Soil Investigations for Data Collection in the Delta
Notice of Intent to Adopt a Mitigated Negative Declaration

Today, the Department of Water Resources (DWR) released an Initial Study/proposed Mitigated Negative Declaration (IS/MND) for soil investigations in the Delta. The proposed data collection, soil samples and surveys would support DWR’s efforts to better understand the region’s geology as the state continues to move forward to modernize water infrastructure in the Delta. For additional information on how to submit comments or to access the document, visit the Delta Conveyance page<https://californiawaterfix.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5e371813b4f6783ed8cdddcab&id=fbd128a15d&e=63ecfdb239> on the DWR website.


  1. What is the purpose of this work and how does the IS/MND relate to other Delta conveyance environmental planning activities?
Collecting data on soil conditions would help determine the composition, location, and geotechnical properties of soil materials commonly found in the Delta. This information would contribute to DWR’s overall understanding of Delta geology and inform the design, environmental analysis and development of alternatives for a potential Delta conveyance project. Preparation of the IS/MND is a standalone CEQA process—separate from environmental review of Delta conveyance—and comments should be focused on the contents and analysis contained in this document.

  1. When would the soil investigations begin?
Soil investigation work would not be scheduled until completion of the environmental review process and all required permits and approvals have been obtained, which is anticipated in late Spring 2020. Initiation of this work would also require the appropriate notification and communication with property owners.

  2. Is there potential for the comment period to be extended?
DWR will take all requests to extend the deadline into consideration. If the comment period is extended, a notification would be posted on the Delta Conveyance webpage<https://californiawaterfix.us10.list-manage.com/track/click?u=5e371813b4f6783ed8cdddcab&id=084a246cd3&e=63ecfdb239> and a notice would go out via email.
