This tour travels deep into California’s water hub and traverses the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, a 720,000-acre network of islands and canals that supports the state’s water system and is California’s most crucial water and ecological resource. The tour will make its way to San Francisco Bay and includes a ferry ride. Water from Northern California flows through the Delta and provides drinking water for more than 27 million Californians and irrigation to about 3 million acres of farmland that contribute to the state’s $54 billion agricultural industry. Planned stops include the Delta Cross Channel, the Bay Model in Sausalito, Los Vaqueros Reservoir and Suisun Marsh. Issues to be discussed include Delta planning initiatives, the proposed tunnel project, water project operations, fish passage, ecosystem restoration, levees and flood management, Delta agriculture, storage, and drinking water quality and water supply reliability. This 3-day, 2-night tour features experts who will discuss the issues and controversies with this important resource, farmers who grow produce and environmentalists who are trying to bolster declining fish populations.
