The Mid-Sacramento Valley Regional Conservation Investment Strategy (RCIS), a locally-driven, non-regulatory, non-binding, and voluntary conservation strategy, has been developed to guide conservation investments and compensatory mitigation in portions of Colusa and Sutter Counties. The RCIS is an outgrowth of the Mid and Upper Sacramento River Regional Flood Management Plan, which provides a framework for integrating conservation into flood management systems. The RCIS was recently approved by the California Department of Fish and Wildlife.

Regional Coordination Committee Meetings – Ongoing
The Coordinating Committee is an informal discussion forum open to stakeholders interested in regional flood management planning and systemwide feasibility studies. The committee is not a decision-making body. Rather, it promotes the exchange of ideas and information and facilitates communication between state and local agencies. Meetings are typically held the fourth Wednesday of each month at the City of West Sacramento. Once per quarter, meetings are held in a region outside the Sacramento area.
