The San Francisco Bay Delta
region of California is located at the confluence of the Sacramento and San
Joaquin Rivers. The water that flows through the Delta supplies drinking water to two-thirds of California's population, provides irrigation water for farmlands, and sustains a diverse array of

combined generation capacities of more than 2,500 MW.
