Senior Geomorphologist Rene Leclerc will examine historical flooding and sedimentation processes on the Sacramento Valley floor. He will also identify the geomorphic context for the present-day Sacramento Valley Flood Control Project and discuss how key events such as hydraulic mining and major floods in 1907 and 1909 guided early flood managers to develop the flood control system we see today. His noontime talk is part of the Joint Brown Bag Series sponsored by the Delta Science Program, the Ecosystem Restoration Program and Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program.

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)
