Bay-Delta Public Advisory Committee (BDPAC)

The Bay-Delta Public Advisory Committee is a cornerstone of CALFED's public involvement. The 30-member body provides advice and recommendations on implementation of the CALFED Bay-Delta Program, Members represent a wide array of environmental, water, tribal and civic interest groups and serve as a key link among CALFED agencies, stakeholders and the public. Public involvement also comes to the CALFED Program through stakeholders representing environmental justice and tribal constituencies and concerns.

Established in October 2001 under the Federal Advisory Committee Act (FACA), BDPAC advises the Secretary of the Interior through Interior agency executives participating in the CALFED Program and serving as members of BDPAC. The committee’s advice and recommendations may be forwarded to or shared contemporaneously with the Governor, members of the Authority and other state and federal entities participating in the CALFED Program.

Its nine subcommittees also are an integral part of CALFED, providing oversight and recommendations on specific program areas such as water quality, environmental justice and water use efficiency.
