Join Us on a Two-Day Tour of the $1.2 Billion San Joaquin River Restoration
Join us on our last tour of 2015 as we move along the San Joaquin River Nov. 5-6 and explore one of the nation’s largest river restoration projects.
Efforts to restore flows to a 60-mile, mostly dry stretch of the San Joaquin River from Friant Dam near Fresno to the confluence of Merced River have been challenging and sometimes controversial.
The project - sparked by a 2006 agreement between environmental groups, the federal government and the Friant Water Users Authority – aims to connect the river with the Pacific Ocean and revive Chinook salmon runs while reducing or avoiding adverse water supply impacts to farmers.
This past summer, federal leaders extended deadlines to 2030 to build key projects under the $1.2 billion plan and to keep federal appropriations funding to less than $50 million each year.
