Second in a Series of Brown Bag Seminars
Discussing Integrated Modeling


Tuesday, Nov. 7, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. PST

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


Ryan Reeves, P.E., Supervising Engineer, CA Department of Water Resources
Dave Smith, Ph.D., Research Ecologist, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers


Ryan Reeves, P.E. and Dave Smith, Ph.D. will discuss progress made on the Evaluating Likely Animal Movement (ELAM) model and results from work being done at Georgiana Slough. They will cover how the model is being integrated with fish guidance projects in the Delta and a strategy for future fish guidance projects. Fish guidance systems are intended to direct fish through waterways that provide the best probability for fish survival.

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)
