SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CVP and SWP facilities that pump water from the Delta can entrain and kill fish, some of which are Federally and State protected species. Reductions in CVP and SWP pumping to protect these fish species can reduce water supply reliability.

The Service, Reclamation, DWR, NMFS, and DFG collectively manage the EWA Program. The Service, NMFS, and DFG are responsible for recommending actions that protect and benefit Deltadependent fish populations. Reclamation and DWR are responsible for acquiring water assets from willing sellers and storing, conveying, and delivering the assets to the CVP and SWP at appropriate times and locations.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: The CVP and SWP facilities that pump water 
from the Delta can entrain and kill fish, some of which are Federally 
and State protected species. Reductions in CVP and SWP pumping to 
protect these fish species can reduce water supply reliability. The EWA 
Program includes Federal and State agencies making environmentally 
beneficial changes in the operation of the CVP and SWP for Delta-
dependent native fish species, and acquiring and managing water assets 
to pay back the water foregone by changes to the operation of the CVP

populations. Reclamation and DWR are responsible for acquiring water 
assets from willing sellers and storing, conveying, and delivering the

environment that may result from the purchase, storage, and conveyance 
of EWA assets, and the actions taken to benefit Delta-dependent fish 
populations. The Draft Supplemental EIS/EIR focused on an analysis of 
impacts to fisheries in the Delta because there have been multiple
