Facing a future of many challenges, it is important that the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service work closely with its state, federal and local partners to plan actions that will promote the conservation of natural resources and provide water for people. The office is in the Pacific Southwest Region.
Within the Bay-Delta, the office will also assume responsibility for environmental contaminants, resource damage assessment, and levee work associated with the new geographic jurisdiction. Upstream of the Bay-Delta, the BDFWO will assume program responsibilities that are related to water storage projects, federal hydropower regulation, and anadromous fishes. The BDFWO is also responsible for the Coastal Program.
