About Us

Our Mission

To plan, permit, design and build a modernized state-of-the art, sustainable, resilient, environmentally responsive and cost-effective Delta Conveyance Project that resolves the long-standing need to assure affordable State Water Project reliability serving future generations of Californians in a way that respects the uniqueness of the Delta as a place and its communities.

Who We Are

Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA) is a joint powers authority governed by a seven-member Board comprised of representatives from sixteen of the Public Water Agencies that are serviced by the Department of Water Resource’s State Water Project. The DCA is currently focused on design and engineering needed to support environmental review and permitting. To understand how these Public Water Agencies are represented on the DCA Board, watch the video here.
