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)

CALFED Archives

The CALFED Bay-Delta Program, the predecessor of the Delta Stewardship Council, was a unique collaboration among 25 state and federal agencies that came together in 1995 to improve California's water supply and the ecological health of the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. In 2000, CALFED released a Record of Decision (ROD) that outlined a 30-year Plan to improve the Delta's ecosystem, water supply reliability, water quality and levee stability. The CALFED ROD remains in effect and, although many of the state, federal and local projects begun under CALFED continue, future direction likely will be coordinated through the Delta Stewardship Council and the Delta Plan.
