The Delta Reform Act of 2009 established a certification process for demonstrating consistency with the Delta Plan. Before a State or local public agency implements certain projects in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, they are required by California law to certify that the project is consistent with Delta Plan regulations. These projects are known as covered actions.


Anyone can appeal a certification of consistency submitted to the Council. When this happens, the Council analyzes the certification against Delta Plan regulations to determine whether evidence in the record supporting the certification substantiates the agency’s certification that the covered action is consistent with the Delta Plan based on issues raised in the appeal.

The Delta Plan creates a common vision for taking on current and predicted challenges and includes regulations, non-regulatory recommendations, and performance measures to further water supply reliability, ecosystem resiliency, and the unique values of the Delta as a place.
