Why Restore the Delta?

A grassroots campaign committed to restoring the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and the Bay-Delta estuary.

About Restore the Delta


Our mission is to save the San Francisco Bay-Delta estuary for our children and future generations. Restore the Delta works in the areas of public education and outreach so that all Californians recognize the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta as part of California’s natural heritage, deserving of restoration.
Restore the Delta is a grassroots campaign of residents and organizations committed to restoring the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta so that fisheries and farming can thrive there together again.

We fight for a Delta with waters that are fishable, swimmable, drinkable, and farmable, able to support the health of the estuary, San Francisco Bay, and the ocean beyond. A coalition of Delta residents, business leaders, civic organizations, community groups, faith-based communities, union locals, farmers, fishermen, and environmentalists, Restore the Delta envisions the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta as a place where a vibrant local economy, tourism, recreation, farming, wildlife, and fisheries thrive as a result of resident efforts to protect our waterway commons.

Based in the Delta, California, Restore the Delta has worked since 2006 in the areas of public education and outreach. Restore the Delta advocates for local Delta stakeholders to ensure that they have a direct impact on water management decisions that affect the well-being of their communities, in addition to water sustainability policies for all of California.
