Keeping the Salt Field at Bay

March 2014

Keeping the salt field at bay during the drought is a major concern. “Salinity is the central management challenge during a drought,” says Jon Burau, a senior hydrologist with the U. S. Geological Survey. Read this latest story from the March 2014 issue of ESTUARY News magazine, a publication partially sponsored by the Delta Stewardship Council: http://www.sfestuary.org/salt-field/

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)
