On Dec. 13, the state of California will release what is likely the final draft of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan, with the goals of providing a more reliable water supply for Southern California and restoring the ecosystem of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
The BDCP’s current draft modeling projections are alarming. They show that continuing sea level rise and increasing statewide water demands in the coming years are likely to draw Folsom Reservoir to such low levels in the driest years that Roseville might not be able to meet its water needs. Advancing a plan that enhances one area's water supplies while sacrificing the reliability of our water supply is unacceptable. The existing and long-term water needs of areas served by Folsom Reservoir, including Roseville, cannot be ignored in the BDCP if the result is truly meant to be a statewide solution.
In fact, once in every nine years, the plan indicates that the water level in Folsom Reservoir is projected to drop below the outlets through which Roseville draws its drinking water. This would turn Folsom Reservoir into a literal “dead pool.”

The State of California is currently developing the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) with the goals of providing a more reliable water supply for southern California and restoring the ecosystem of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. As a longtime member of this community, I am deeply concerned that this plan, as it currently exists, totally ignores severe threats to northern California and Roseville's long-term water supply reliability and here’s why.
The BDCP’s modeling projections show that continuing sea level rise and increasing statewide water demands in the coming years are likely to draw Folsom Reservoir to such low levels in the driest years that Roseville might not be able to meet its water needs. However, the existing and long term water needs of areas served by Folsom Reservoir, including Roseville, have largely been ignored in the BDCP.
