Our Science Program
Meet the science professionals who support Regional San’s efforts to protect public health and the environment.
A primary focus of the Regional San science team is working in partnership with other agencies and organizations to study the importance of a wide range of stressors on the Delta ecosystem (and on the Delta’s beneficial uses) so that the best possible science can be brought to bear on critical policy and management issues in the Delta and watershed.
Potential stressors include hydrologic modification, fish entrainment, invasive species, predation, contaminants, habitat loss or alteration, climate change, and our treatment plant’s discharge.
Working groups, conferences, meetings, and special projects in which the Regional San science team participates:
