2018 Bay-Delta Science Conference September 10-12
The 10th Biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference was held on September 10-12, 2018 at the Sacramento Convention Center, 1400 J St, Sacramento, CA 95814.
This year's theme was “Our Estuary at an Intersection.”
Intersections are decision points and places where crossroads meet. The management of the Bay-Delta ecosystem sits at the crossroads of geography, ecology, economy, culture, and resource management. Navigating the intersection has direct implications for statewide water supply and efforts to improve the aquatic ecosystem for fisheries, recreation, and tourism. Achieving these goals requires science that addresses the intersection of geographical, ecological, physical, and social considerations in order to build long-term, resilient solutions.
The conference program featured oral and poster presentations.
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)
