The California Bay-Delta—made up of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Rivers Delta and San Francisco Bay—has, for the past 150 years, been inundated with man-made alterations causing a steep decline in the region’s health. To date, certain species' populations have dropped to the lowest numbers on record and natural flows have been diverted, leading to a decline in water quality and availability to communities and farms across California.
Local, state, and federal policymakers have been struggling to address the Delta’s woes for decades. This year’s California Water Law Symposium will focus on the current state of the region, the litigation and initiatives presently underway, and proposals for the Delta's future.
