On March 5, the Delta Science Program in conjunction with the Ecosystem Restoration Program and Surface Water Ambient Monitoring Program will host a joint seminar featuring Erwin Van Nieuwenhuyse, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, speaking on “Unifying Aquatic Science for Adaptive Management of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta”. This talk will describe a simple, unifying conceptual model for flowing water systems.
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)
