Public Comments and Correspondence

The activities of the Delta Stewardship Council include the need for a thorough two-way dialogue between the Council and everyone who relies on the Delta watershed in California.  While much of the conversation occurs at the Council meetings, another significant portion reaches us through letters and emails.

Below are links to listings of the comments received by individuals, interest groups, public agencies and private companies all of whom offered thoughts about various issues raised before the Council, products adopted by the Council or the Delta Science Program, and issues raised before the Delta Independent Science Board.


The category “Other Correspondence” lists all of the comments received about other issues in non-specific categories.  These are chronologically listed by the date they arrived.


The category “Outgoing Correspondence” lists outbound letters generated either by Council members or Council staff.



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)
