California Department of Transportation
The mission of the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans) is to provide the people of California with a safe efficient and intermodal transportation system. In pursuit of its mission, Caltrans plans, develops, maintains, and manages the interregional transportation system and assists and guides the delivery of local and regional transportation services. Caltrans also provides leadership for California's transportation future by conducting research and development, and by formulating plans, programs, guidelines, and standards.
Major Roles and Responsibilities in Wetlands Management
Caltrans is required to be in compliance with regulations pertaining to wetlands and to implement the state and federal policies of "no net loss" of wetlands. As a result of these policies, disturbances or impacts to wetlands due to transportation projects are compensated through the creation, restoration, enhancement, and/or preservation of wetlands.
Caltrans complies with all state and federal laws pertaining to wetlands and wetlands protection. These laws include the California Environmental Quality Act, National Environmental Policy Act, 401 and 404 of the federal Clean Water Act, 10 of the Rivers and Harbors Act, and the President's Executive Order 11990.
