Yesterday, the California Department of Water Resources (DWR) launched an environmental justice community survey to gather input to inform Delta Conveyance Project planning.
The survey, entitled, “Your Delta, Your Voice”, seeks direct input from communities that may be disproportionately affected by the proposed project. Specifically, DWR is seeking direct feedback from the people who live, work, recreate, raise families, run businesses, grow crops, worship, or advocate for equity in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
“Your Delta, Your Voice” has two primary goals. One is to accurately reflect how the members of a variety of Delta communities value the region’s cultural, recreational and natural resources, through a series of questions and a map that allows people to identify places that are special to them. The other is to seek input about ways the project may cause impacts to these resources or potentially bring benefits to Delta communities.
At Restore the Delta, we believe that it is important that you make your voice heard.
The survey should take under 10 minutes to complete and can be accessed by smart phone, tablet or computer in English, Spanish and Chinese.
