The Delta Science Program has funded 40 research grants totaling more than $25 million. The Science Program considers funding scientific research to be a critical component in establishing unbiased and authoritative knowledge directly relevant to Bay-Delta actions. This knowledge will fundamentally advance the understanding of the complex environments and ecosystems within the Bay-Delta system to aid policy-makers, managers and other decision-makers.
2013 Delta Science Fellowships Awarded - The Delta Science Program in conjunction with California Sea Grant awarded Fellowships for 2013 to ten outstanding candidates – double the number that could have otherwise been awarded due to additional funding support from the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and the California Department of Water Resources.
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)
