Phase II Projects

Phase II Projects are targeted for completion within eight years of initiating the program. Lessons learned from the Phase I Projects may influence the scope, priority, and identification of the Phase II projects resulting in potential changes and/or additions to Phase I Projects with the exception of a Phase II Project with identified prerequisites. In that case the start date immediately follows completion of the prerequisites. Alternatively, additional contractor funding may be necessary to partner on a project, or to initiate a project on a timeframe independent of Water Board staff resources.

Phase III Projects

Phase III Projects have been targeted for completion within twelve years of initiating the program. Proposed Phase III Projects include projects categorized as medium and low priority. Estimated start dates were determined based on the average targeted completion date of Phase II Projects with the exception of a Phase III Project with an identified prerequisite. In that case, the start date immediately follows completion of the prerequisite.
