The 30-member body provides advice and recommendations on implementation of the CALFED Bay-Delta Program, Members represent a wide array of environmental, water, tribal and civic interest groups and serve as a key link among CALFED agencies, stakeholders and the public. Public involvement also comes to the CALFED Program through stakeholders representing environmental justice and tribal constituencies and concerns.

The Independent Science Board is a standing board of distinguished scientists and engineers with a range of multi-disciplinary expertise, including local and external relevant expertise. These experts are charged with helping the Authority establish an independent and objective view of science issues that underlie important policy decisions for the Delta.
