CV-SALTS is an important science, policy and regulatory planning process making significant progress in planning a sustainable future for Central Valley water users. CV-SALTS has an aggressive schedule to prepare a Draft Salt and Nitrate Management Plan (SNMP) for the Central Valley by next summer. This plan has technical/scientific elements of study and information gathering as well as a variety of policy issues, which are being addressed through examples, call archetypes. CV-SALTS has a budget of about $10 million for planning and technical work to complete the SNMP. Because of the size and complexity of the Central Valley, CV-SALTS is focusing on gathering a high level of information needed to make broad policy changes for the entire valley.
