The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)



Dedicated to Sustaining the Delta

  • There’s no place on earth like the Delta – just ask any resident or first time visitor.

  • The Delta provides a substantial portion of the drinking for 25 million Californians – nearly 2/3rds the state’s population.

  • The Delta is the largest estuary on the West Coast of the Americas and one of the most unique ecosystems in the world.
