America's Most Endangered Rivers™: 2009 Edition
Depended on by nearly 25 million Californians for drinking water, thousands of farmers, and the state’s commercial and sport salmon fishing industries, the Sacramento-San Joaquin river system is arguably California’s single most important natural resource. But the outdated water supply and flood management systems have put at risk the ecosystem and thousands of Californian families and businesses that depend upon it.
The California Department of Water Resources, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, and other water users and stakeholders must overcome decades of neglect, mismanagement and conflict to develop a workable, durable plan to restore the ecosystem, secure water supplies and reduce the risk of floods.
