The San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary — the largest estuary on the Pacific Coast of North and South America — has just been thrown a lifeline to pull it back from the brink of disaster.
Today, only a small fraction of water that would naturally flow in the rivers of the San Joaquin Basin actually reaches the San Francisco Bay-Delta Estuary due to California’s multitude of dams, canals, and other water diversions — threatening water quality, native salmon, thousands of jobs, and drinking water for 25 million Americans.
Urge the State Water Resources Control Board to adopt stronger protections for San Francisco’s Bay-Delta Estuary and help protect California’s vital waters for future generations.
Make your voice heard before the comment period ends at noon on July 27.

Please adopt stronger standards protecting California’s rivers and the Bay-Delta Estuary
