The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta serves as a vital hub in California’s water system, with much of Southern California and Central Valley agriculture heavily dependent upon it for exported water, Delta residents and farmers relying on it, and fish and wildlife lifecycles dependent upon it. It is where water users and fish and wildlife collide. It has been the subject of conferences, legislation, reports, litigation, speculation, and focused attention over the last couple of decades. However, there has not been a time of as much focused attention and action as the last few years. The panel brings experts and practitioners who are now actively working on Delta issues together to give a practical update on what’s up now and what to watch for in the coming year or two.
