Tuesday, Sept. 29, 2015 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.

Park Tower Building 2nd Floor Conference Room 980 Ninth St. Sacramento, CA 95814

Dr. Philip Garone - California State University, Stanislaus


This presentation by California State University, Stanislaus, Professor Dr. Phillip Garone will discuss the ecological transformation of the Delta as well as how more recent federal and state projects to re-engineer California’s hydrology have led to water quality problems in the Delta that now threaten native fish species and the overall integrity of the Delta ecosystem.


This joint Brown Bag with the Ecosystem Restoration Program and the Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program is the first in a series on the “Delta Narratives” project, a collaborative project to communicate the historic and cultural importance of the Delta region in California’s history.

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)
