Restoring the Delta and Creating a Clean, Reliable Water Supply
Restoring the ecological health of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is critical for the protection of all species, aquatic and terrestrial, while providing clean, reliable water to twenty-five million Californians.
The Bay Delta Conservation Plan advances the recovery of endangered, threatened and sensitive Delta species and their habitats in a way that will also protect and restore water supplies.
In 2009, a comprehensive plan to meet the state's growing waters needs was signed. The historic package represents a major step to pursue the co-equal goals of restoring the Delta ecosystem and ensuring water supply reliability for all Californians.
The Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force developed a program for sustainable management of the Delta's multiple uses, resources and ecosystem. These recommendations helped inform the comprehensive water package passed by the Legislature.
The Delta Stewardship Council promotes policies that protect the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem and the critical role it serves in the water supply for millions of Californians and its unique ecosystem and way of life. The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy is the primary state agency responsible for promoting economic vitality in the Delta.
