Wrong Maps of the Delta:  Waterways focus

       Below are thumbnails of different maps from Delta planning documents generated between 2000 and 2013.  You might note
a pattern of specific waterways that have been renamed, relocated or eliminated in the maps.  You might also notice that
agencies that have a long history of correctly locating Delta waterways started confusing the locations in the last 10 years.
It is only reasonable to question the validity of the respective reports when the report drafter doesn't even know the location
of the subject matter reported on.  This page focuses of the mistakes in waterway names.  Other focus pages include
DRMS report, online maps of Google, Bing and Yahoo, confusing Delta Island names, etc.  If you are not familiar with
the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta Region, you might want to refer to the section on "Reference Maps" or check
online with USACE, which seems to consistently correctly portray Delta islands and waterways.
