Tuolumne River Stewardship

Tuolumne River Management Plan

Together with Modesto Irrigation District, we’ve developed a comprehensive management plan for the River.
The plan describes our proposed operations, improvements, and resource protection measures under a new Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) license for the Don Pedro Project.

Plan Goals

  • Maintain water supply reliability for Tuolumne River agricultural and municipal users, and promote the long-term prosperity of the communities served.
  • Identify measures to protect and expand the fall-run Chinook salmon and O. mykiss populations.
  • Support recreational opportunities and riparian resources on the lower Tuolumne River.
  • Protect cultural, terrestrial and recreational resources at the Don Pedro and La Grange projects.
