Document Description
On December 12, 2018, the State Water Resources Control Board (State Water Board) adopted Resolution No. 2018-0059 amending the Water Quality Control Plan for the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Estuary (Bay-Delta Plan). The amendments establish new flow objectives that recognize the need for flows of an adequate volume and more variable pattern on the three major tributaries of the Lower San Joaquin River watershed to provide habitat and migratory signals and protections for native fish. Refined salinity objectives reflect updated scientific information about salt levels that reasonably protect farming in the southern Delta. *SEE NDE FOR FULL DETAILS
