Delta Stewardship Council Meeting

On November 17 at 9:00 AM, the Council will conduct a public hearing to receive comments on proposed amendments to implement the Delta Levees Investment Strategy (DLIS) and may direct staff regarding the next steps for the proposed rulemaking.

Additionally, the Council will hear from staff on the Delta Science Program’s Ecosystem Restoration Progress Review, which summarizes progress toward the restoration targets set by Chapter 4 of the Delta Plan, discusses the policy motivations for restoration projects, and reviews the best available management-relevant science. 


The DLIS combines risk analysis, economics, engineering, and decision-making techniques to identify funding priorities and assemble a comprehensive investment strategy for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta levees. It was developed in collaboration with State agencies, local reclamation districts, Delta landowners and businesses, and other stakeholders and is based on the best available data and lessons learned from other State and local programs and planning efforts.
