Park Tower Building

Geoffrey McQuilkin, Executive Director of the Mono Lake Committee will review the nearly two-decade process of science-driven adaptive management to restore stream habitat and fisheries in the four tributaries of Mono Lake impaired by historic water diversions to the city of Los Angeles. Experiences in the Mono Basin could provide a successful model for adaptive management and restoration in the Delta, supporting the Delta Plan and Biological Opinions related to state and federal endangered species acts.

This 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.

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)
