My guess is that the acronym was actually meant to be for Bay Delta Conveyance Plan, though when I put this question to Jerry Meral during
the April 4th forum, he ignored it. (He did answer the other question I sent
in the same email.)
It seems high time to for this to be clarified for general public.
