Layperson’s Guide to the Delta
The 24-page Layperson’s Guide to the Delta explores the competing uses and demands on California’s Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Included in the guide are sections on the history of the Delta, its role in the state’s water system, and its many complex issues with sections on water quality, levees, salinity and agricultural drainage, fish and wildlife, and water distribution.
The 2020 version includes the latest information about California EcoRestore, the Bay-Delta Water Quality Control Plan, Delta conveyance, new information about ongoing Delta litigation, invasive species, a glossary of common terms and information on the many state and federal agencies involved in Delta issues.
Complementing the guide is the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Map.
