Water quality

March 24, 2008

Sustainable water policy in California will require maintaining or improving water quality. The Delta is an important source of drinking water for Californians, but sustaining a quality sufficient for human and agricultural consumption presents a number of problems and challenges to water managers. Similarly, poor environmental water quality is recognized as one of the influential stressors contributing to the ecological problems of the Delta (Bennett 2005; Kimmerer 2004).
