Modernized Delta Conveyance

The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta (Delta) is the hub of our state’s water delivery system and home to one of California’s most important ecosystems. But the system no longer works. Aging dirt levees are all that protect our main source of water from catastrophic earthquakes, floods and rising sea levels. The environment is deteriorating and water deliveries are constrained by tightening regulations.

We need a modern system that can protect water supplies for people, the environment, farms and the California economy.

Your Voice is Needed!

California’s aging water infrastructure needs your help. Efforts to modernize the state’s water system relied upon by 27 million Californians are once again gaining momentum.

The state has initiated the environmental review process for modernized Delta Conveyance. SCWC has a long history of supporting modernized Delta Conveyance. We led the coalition in support of the earlier version of this project, known as California WaterFix. In 2019, the California WaterFix project was revised and renamed. Today, the Delta Conveyance project consists of one pipeline instead of two, but the goal remains the same: improving water supply resiliency for Californians.
