Water and California: The Pivotal Role of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, a venue about 60 miles from Berkeley, is the conduit for much of the water transferred through the state.

Today it is a disturbed, vulnerable and artificially-created landscape. It is an important part of California as it is home to productive agriculture and battleground for many environmental issues challenging the State of California relating to sustainable land management and land use, fish, water, agriculture, water quality and recreation.

In this talk we will describe the Delta problem, and predicate it with information on its geography, physical history, its current state, projection for the future. We will address questions from our research on how to stop and reverse the dramatic soil subsidence that is occurring and what are the unintended consequences.
