Annual Travers Ethics Conference: Managing The Delta

Fri, Mar 2 2012 - 9:00am

15th Annual Travers Ethics Conference

Managing the Delta: The Governance Challenges of Adaptive Management

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is a critically important public resource for California and the nation. Much of our state’s drinking water flows through the delta, and delta water irrigates millions of acres of California farmland. As the largest estuary on the West Coast, the delta ecosystem supports native fish and wildlife and offers many recreational opportunities. Because of these many often competing uses, effective management of the delta has been challenging, if not intractable. This conference convenes a group of expert panelists to describe the key features of the new Delta Plan and to discuss the governance challenges associated with implementing the plan.
