CALFED Objectives

  • Water Quality
    • Image - Click for more information. Approximately two-thirds of all Californians - an estimated 23 million people - obtain at least some of their water from the Delta. This means the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is the single largest source of California's water. CALFED's Water Quality Program Objective is to invest in projects that improve the state's water quality from source to tap.
  • Water Supply

CALFED's Water Supply Reliability Program Objective is comprised of five critical elements: Conveyance, Storage, Environmental Water Account, Water Use Efficiency and Water Transfer. Together and in partnership with local and regional agencies, this program allows for the increase of water supplies and more efficient and flexible use of water resources.
  • Ecosystem Restoration

Through CALFED implementing agencies, ERP works to restore and protect habitats, ecosystem functions and native species and the Watershed Program provides funding, coordinates and offers technical support for local watershed activities.
  • Levee Integrity
    • Image - Click for more information. Resources of CALFED's Levee System Integrity Program Objective protect water supplies needed for ecosystems, cities, industry and farms by reducing the threat of levee failures that would lead to seawater intrusion. The program works through continuous monitoring and improvement of the Delta's 1,100 miles of levees.
