Updated 2011

The 24-page Layperson’s Guide to the Central Valley Project explores the history and development of the federal Central Valley Project (CVP), California’s largest surface water delivery system. In addition to the history of the project, the guide describes the various CVP facilities, CVP operations, the benefits the CVP brought to the state, and the CVP Improvement Act (CVPIA).

The guide also includes information on and challenges facing the Bay-Delta Estuary; the San Joaquin River Restoration Program; and implementation of the CVPIA, including its anadromous fish restoration program, land retirement program and contract renewals.
