The ICP was comprised of representatives from the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the Grassland Water District/Grassland Resource Conservation District. The ICP developed the 1998 Task Force Report, which outlines past, present, and future wetland planning and management issues and a methodology for Refuge Criteria. To continue the work of the now disbanded ICP, an Interagency Refuge Water Management Team (IRWMT) was formed to continue working on wetland issues such as water delivery, including additional work on wetland Refuge Criteria. The IRWMT is comprised of representatives from the Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the California Department of Fish and Game, and the Grassland Water District/ Grassland Resource Conservation District. The IRWMT used the 1998 Task Force Report and Reclamation’s 1999 Conservation and Efficiency Criteria as the foundation for developing the water management planning requirements or criteria included in these Refuge Criteria. The Refuge Criteria also incorporated comments, ideas, and suggestions from Refuge/ District managers, biologists, water conservation specialists, engineers, the CALFED Bay-Delta Program, and other Central Valley stakeholders. Our practice is to make comments, including names and home addresses of respondents, available for public review. Individual respondents may request that we withhold their home address from public disclosure, which we will honor to the extent allowable by law. There also may be circumstances in which we would withhold a respondent’s identity from public disclosure, as allowable by law.

(ICP) was formed. The ICP was comprised of representatives from the 
Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the 
California Department of Fish and Game, and the Grassland Water 
District/Grassland Resource Conservation District. The ICP developed 
the 1998 Task Force Report, which outlines past, present, and future
