There has been an ongoing conversation about the importance of thinking about the San Francisco Estuary holistically as a connected system, rather than siloing the Bay, Delta, and watersheds. The purpose of the Delta Science Program's upcoming brown bag seminar series, Integrating the Bay and Delta, is to contribute to that conversation about Bay-Delta linkages. Ongoing management efforts focused on water quality issues will be used as a way to explore the challenges and benefits related to thinking of the system as one.

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)
