A letter from Michael Peterson, Dir. Sacramento County Dept. of Water Resources, to Dustin Jones, a Sup. Engineer for the Council, re: Sacramento County's comments on the Delta Plan amendments for the Delta Levees Invesment Strategy

Coequal goals

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)
