The Delta has undergone great change in the last century and a half. This presentation by Reuben Smith and William Swagerty from the University of the Pacific explores aspects of trade, transportation and communication history in the Delta, while touching on reclamation, agriculture, and economics.
This joint Brown Bag with the Ecosystem Restoration Program and the Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program is the second in a series on the “Delta Narratives” project, a collaborative effort to communicate the historic and cultural importance of the Delta region in California’s history.

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)
