The Delta Protection Commission in the News

The Delta Protection Act declares that “the Delta is a natural resource of statewide, national, and international significance, containing irreplaceable resources, and that it is the policy of the State to recognize, preserve, and protect those resources of the Delta for the use and enjoyment of current and future generations, in a manner that protects and enhances the unique values of the Delta as an evolving place.”  (PRC sections 29701-2).

Commission members and staff are working hard to “protect and enhance” the Delta, and are pleased to share recognition of our efforts and those of our partners in local media coverage on this page.  Interested parties can forward published articles or mentions for inclusion here by sending an email to the Communication Specialist.
