    Reclamation proposes to continue the operation of the Central Valley Project in coordination with the State Water Project by implementing the associated U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service Biological Opinion and the National Marine Fisheries Service Biological Opinion, including the Reasonable and Prudent Alternatives.   From street level, a pedestrianised path, running along retails functions, terraces and roof gardens, leads up to the central valley-area spread across the 4th and 5th level and surrounds the central tower. Internationally renowned landscape architect Piet Oudolf designed all of Valley’s vegetation, focusing on a year-round green appearance.   Gutierrez: So the Central Valley Project and SWRCB were both supported in the 20’s and 30’s, all the way up through the 70’s. After the 70’s, things did change and dams stopped getting built, but also most of the resources were already tapped at that point.
