Public Participation

As a California state agency led by an appointed council, public participation is fundamental to the Delta Stewardship Council’s work toward the coequal goals of ensuring a reliable California water supply and resilient Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem, achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place. This web page serves as a “one-stop shop” for those seeking information on how to engage with the Council through its recent and upcoming opportunities for public engagement. Please contact the Council’s Office of Public Participation at engage@deltacouncil.ca.gov or (916) 445-5511 with any questions on the information below.

Public Participation Plan

Endorsed by the Council in June 2020, its Public Participation Plan serves as a guide for how any stakeholder or member of the public, regardless of background, location, ability, or status, can pursue opportunities to inform Council decision-making. The Council recognizes that the possible effective mechanisms for public participation are not “one size fits all” and may vary depending on the particular issue. This plan will be reviewed and revised periodically to ensure it reflects current best practices.
