Stephen Arakawa, manager of the Bay-Delta Initiatives Program at the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California, has a background of 30 years working in the water field as a civil engineer.
At Metropolitan he is responsible for the plans and activities to secure a reliable supply from the state water project through environmental and water supply improvements in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. A key initiative within the program is completion of a Bay-Delta Conservation Plan which entails the environmental review, permitting and preliminary design for both environmental restoration of the Delta and an improved water delivery system in the Delta.
Prior to that he served as group manager of the Water Resource Management Group for over 10 years where he was responsible for managing the district's planning activities and policy guideline development related to Metropolitan's water supply plans and integrated resources plans; the development and implementation of Metropolitan's resources programs for conservation, local resources projects, and groundwater recovery and conjunctive use programs; and the management and negotiations of resource contracts related to the State Water Project, Colorado River deliveries and water transfers and purchases.
Before coming to Metropolitan in 1987, Arakawa worked for the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) in Sacramento for seven years. For DWR he conducted studies regarding the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary. He is a registered engineer in California. He is a graduate of Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles with a degree in civil engineering.

Metropolitan's Bay-Delta Initiatives Program Manager Steve Arakawa then gave a verbal update on the Bay Delta Conservation Plan.
The past two months, the primary activity has been to complete the next draft of BDCP along with the associated environmental documents. The consultant, ICF, is in the process of finishing the documents that will make up the next administrative draft, he said, which is expected to be available around the middle of February.
The State made a decision to complete a comprehensive benefit-cost analysis, and that study is being currently being conducted and is expected to be completed in the next few months.
Once the administrative draft comes out, we will then be able to identify the benefits that are being characterized for the water users, as well as the benefits that are being created for the covered species of the BDCP: "I would expect that in a month from now, we will have a view of that from the posted document on the web," Mr. Arakawa said.
He concluded by noting that state and federal leaders are continuing to meet on a regular basis to prepare for the administrative draft and to discuss how they will work together and review documents as the BDCP moves to a public draft a little bit later in the year.
