Most of California’s water flows through the Delta, fueling our huge agricultural engine, serving 20+ million residents in Southern California and enabling critical manufacturing functions in our high tech corridors.
The Delta – and its delicate ecosystem – is also standing directly in the path of climate change. The declining Sierra snowpack means less fresh water coming down from the Sierras, and sea level rise means increasing salt water incursions from the West. Coupled with the ever present earthquake risk to the 1100 miles of levees, overall water supply, reliability and water quality are all at risk.
If you’re interested in hearing top thinkers on Delta issues discuss How the San Francisco Bay Delta Can Be Saved, come to a free panel, moderated by Lois Kazakoff, Deputy Editorial Page Editor at the San Francisco Chronicle. Drinks and discussion to follow.
PANELISTS (the first two of which are members of the Delta Dialogues, one of Groupaya’s current clients):
Delta Conservancy Executive Officer Campbell Ingram
Delta farmer Russell van Loben Sels
Public Policy Institute of California Co-Director of Research Ellen Hanak
