At the November 2014 Delta Plan Interagency Implementation Committee meeting, committee members requested a "list of high-impact science activities for near-term implementation," based on the Interim Science Action Agenda, be prepared for its next meeting on May 11, 2015. These science activities are to have cross agency importance, be relevant to multiple mandates, and be implementable in the next 1-2 years. The Delta Agency Science workgroup, involving management-level individuals representing both state and federal agencies, and the Delta Science Program, have developed a draft list of potential high-impact science actions.
The purpose of this workshop is to introduce the draft list of high-impact science actions to stakeholders and the broader Delta community for comment.
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)
