Delta-Estuary: California’s Inland Coast. A Public Trust Report
This Commission report has two purposes: 1) to mark the status of the public trust resources in California’s great Delta region and the likely future of those resources if present trends continue; and 2) to identify and underscore the importance of the Delta, in the context of the Environmental Protection Agency’s current San Francisco Estuary Project. This status and trends review of the Delta’s public trust resources is intended to provide guidance to the Commission and other governmental agencies whose activities are concerned with or affect public trust values. This report also examines the accomplishments and failures of the public and private sector agencies and organizations whose activities influence or control the fate of the Delta.
