Delta Issues

     For a detail chart of issues, from a Delta perspective, go to Issues

     The links below provide a researcher's summary of some of the main issues regarding the latest effort to REvise the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta region.  Since there are literally millions of research pages regarding the issues, we try to direct the reader to the best summaries or maps for quick review and understanding of the issues, not based on what the media wants you to know but based on historical FACTS.  The Delta Region is a huge, complicated water and utility hub that DOES need to be revised and issues resolved based on FACTS, not fabricated data designed to lead the reader to a specific conclusion. 

    The buzz word for the 21st Century is "Sustainability" and certainly the media has been applying that word as the measure by which to validate the governmental taking of Delta private lands to hand over to other private interests.  Please take the time to look at all the issues and form your own opinion based on facts, to determine what is or is not "sustainable", and what might be the best option for California overall. 

      We suggest you click on the map to see an enlarged version, or print out the Delta's Future map to use as reference for the locations of the Delta Islands which are the target of topics as listed.  For a general video about the Delta, go to http://youtube.com and type in "Sacramento Delta 101" or click on the "Don't Drain the Delta" photo to the left above.

Thru-Delta vs Delta Cross Channel Plan vs CalFed Preferred Alternative vs Monterey Agreement vs Napa Agreement vs Large Owner Axis vs Delta Corridors vs Pheriperal Canal:  What's the difference besides the name?  
East vs. West:  Dividing the Delta between fresh water and brackish water environments using the CALFED Central Canal   
Landowner vs. Developer:  Who benefits from the plans for the Delta's Future:  A lesson all US landowners should be paying attention to!  (Eminent domain for water conveyance and mitigation measures)  
Dam the Delta vs Dam a Valley:  Where to store more water  
Computer Modeling vs Common Knowledge:  
Fish vs Farmer:  Kern County and Westside Farmers vs California's endangered fish species.   
Fish vs Fish: 0, 2 and 4 legged preditors  
Fish vs weeds  
Navigation vs weeds  
Farmer vs. Vacationer:  
Delta Farmer vs Delta Farmer:  Dividing Delta Farmer interests to conquer the whole  
Sacramento River vs San Joaquin River:  Water quality  
Fact vs Fiction:  Sacramento River Flow It should be a simple answer...how much water on average flows into the Delta from the Sacramento River and how much flows out of the Delta from the Sacramento River?  See waterflow history
County vs County:  In the proposed revised Delta, the counties of Sacramento, San Joaquin and Contra Costa benifit at the expense of Solano and Yolo...again  
Sacramento County vs Sacramento County-planned that way  
Rice vs Other Crops:  Growing Rice and growing Tules consumes more water than other crops  
Tules vs Food:  Does growing tules to "reduce carbon footprint" make up for the loss of food production on the same land?  
Fact vs Fiction:  Delta Island Flood History:  Historical Facts vs. DWR fabricated maps & data
Dilution vs. Storage:  Is dumping of toxins into the Delta to dilute the toxic impact really a better option than compaction and storage of the toxins?
Fact vs Fiction: Delta Island Subsidence (sinking):  Historical Surveys vs Projections based on false data

NorCal Aquafer vs SoCal Aquafer:  Who looses when water is limited?

Fact vs Fiction:  Delta Levees and Earthquakes:  Historical Facts vs.  Saladbar Scientific Analysis

Statistics vs. Reality:  People of the Delta

Thru-Delta vs Delta Cross Channel vs CalFed Preferred Alternative vs Monterey Agreement vs Napa Agreement vs Large Owner Axis vs Delta Corridors vs Pheriperal Canal:  What's the difference besides the name?
