Sept. 5 - Exploring Abandoned Derelict Vessels in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta

Tuesday, Sept. 5, 2017
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. PDT

 

Park Tower Building
2nd Floor Conference Room
980 Ninth St., Sacramento, CA 95814

 

Annie Daly, Masters Candidate, UC Santa Barbara Bren School of Environmental Science and Management

 

Ms. Daly will discuss how abandoned derelict vessels (ADVs) in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta impede navigation, interfere with boating traffic, and leak toxic chemicals into waterways.

 

Ms. Daly, who worked with the Delta Protection Commission and CDFW’s Office of Spill Prevention and Response, will present her research that examined aerial and on-water survey data, costs for vessel removal, and how other states handle ADVs. This information will help managers anticipate the resources needed to address the problem.

Coequal goals

The Delta Stewardship Council was created in legislation to achieve the state mandated coequal goals for the Delta. "'Coequal goals' means the two goals of providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource, and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place." (CA Water Code §85054)
