Here we track other processes and quality of life issues in the urban and rural Delta including, but not limited to:

• Flood Control

• Drinking Water Quality / Harmful Algal Blooms / E.coli issues

• Homeless Encampments on Waterways

• Abandoned Vessels

• California Fires

• Illegal Dumping

Our goal is to provide comment letters to government agencies when needed with recommendations for problem solving and to engage the public in local and state management processes to improve the quality of life in the Delta and to protect the estuary for future generations.


Drinking Water Quality / Harmful Algal Blooms / E.coli Issues

Stockton Drinking Water Facts Sheet – State Water Resources Control Board

Do you wonder why your water may look brown or sometimes smell or taste bad? While it does not mean your water is unsafe, it can be unpleasant and difficult to drink. There are resources available in Stockton to address your concerns. The purpose of this fact sheet is to help answer commonly asked questions, identify resources, and learn about your drinking water.

Harmful Algal Blooms (HABs) in the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary Fact Sheet – Restore the Delta

Harmful Algal Blooms are proliferating in freshwater systems internationally, nationally, statewide, and locally here in the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary. Stockton, the Delta’s environmental justice and rural communities are ground zero for risk from health impacts associated with Harmful Algal blooms.
