  6. Work Plan Elements

  7. Water Board Comments • Efficiency: Where did the perception come from that there are inefficiencies in the permitting process? • DMMOTiming and Need: Water Board not convinced that the need exists for a formal structure • Constituents: Balancing the need for dredging with the Board’s mission to protect water quality.

  8. Water Board’s LTMS Goals Work towards expediting dredging in the Delta while: • Decreasing the risks of dredging projects on water quality; and • Decreasing the uncertainties of the risks of dredging projects.
