About Restore the Delta
On March 30, 2006 and July 15, 2006 Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta stakeholders gathered at the University of the Pacific in Stockton to discuss the state and the future of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. What made these meetings different from the myriad of Delta conferences held over the last fifteen years was that they were not led by a government agency. Local activists from the region brought together members of conservation groups, farmers, housing developers, angling groups, faith organizations, university staff, farmers, school teachers, SJ County Supervisors, cultural heritage groups, water lawyers, recreational boating groups, and representatives from the agricultural community. In two three-hour working meetings, this group of Delta stakeholders set the following agenda for the Restore the Delta Campaign.
