2011 Documents-not uploaded.  Just to many different agencies with different planning processes and literally hundreds of thousands of pages reflecting studies and planning how to REVISE the Delta for the purpose of more water export, with mitigation a requirement due to the planned revisions.
June 2011:  By now its clear to everyone in the Delta that there have been years of planning and document production completed without effective Delta landowner input, and with intentional and specific Delta landowner exclusion.  The "stakeholders" are always people who's primary interest is the export of water and how to minimize impacts to fish or the ecological function of the Delta...impacts to the humans who own, live, work or play in the Delta does not seem to be of anyone's concern, so Delta landowners are starting to speak up.  The problem is, there are so many different sections of the "central canal" or CALFED "preferred alternative" that are all built or ready to build as "shovel ready projects", approved as regional projects, that its hard to know where to spend effort and speak up.  And that's how it was planned.  However, as John Steinbeck said "The best laid plans of mice and men do often go astray"....

2011 documents that we have the time to upload are listed by the different agencies.  However, to get the FULL picture of what is going on, we suggest you go to the particular agency website and review all of their documents.  PLEASE NOTE:   Most of the documents and studies showing up in 2011 were written in 2005-2008, and then held to be unleashed on Delta folks all at the same time (personal opinion).  Something else to note:  The Central Canal is almost built per DWR documents.  The DRMS Phase 2 documents make it clear the goal is to take 15,000 cubic feet per second from the Sacramento River.  But what happens when the Sacramento River flow is less than 15,000 cfs?  See Historical Facts on Sacramento River Flow
Some agency websites:
http://deltacouncil.ca.gov/
http://baydeltaconservationplan.com
http://www.water.ca.gov
http://www.usbr.gov/projects/Project.jsp?proj_Name=Delta+Division+Project
http://www.usbr.gov/projects/Project.jsp?proj_Name=Central+Valley+Project


DRMS Phase 2 documents.
URS, DWR never corrected all the mistakes in DRMS Phase 1, and just moved on, ignoring the Phase 2 proposals are based on false data.  Guess the government/URS and the other consultants who developed the DRMS series is comfortable with the litigation that will result from knowingly using false data?

The conveyance proposals appear to focus on a 15,000 cfs canal diverting Sacramento River Water to export pumps.  Since Sacramento River waterfow in the Delta can go below 10,000 in dry years and during summer and fall, what happens to the Delta farms?
BDCP  "Bay Delta Conservation Plan".  We'll list a few of the documents and maps here, but since this particular organizations keeps changing documents, maps, scientists, etc, we suggest you go to http://baydeltaconservationplan.com   Note that 2011 is a very imporant year for the eir/eis process and you should consider making comments if you care about the Delta!
Delta Stewardship Council
The DSC is the group of appointed council members that are charged by CA legislature to make decision regarding the future of the Delta...not a soul on the council to protect Delta landowner, Delta towns, Delta businesses, long term Delta residents.  "If you're not at the table, most likely you're what's for dinner".  We've heard the sying many times...Briar Rabbit, Wile Coyote to name a few.  Who would guess cartoons of last century would be prophetic for the Delta in the 21st Century?
