10th Anniversary of the Delta Conservancy

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Conservancy. The Delta Conservancy was created as part of the Delta Reform Act passed in late 2009, and in March of 2010, the Delta Conservancy Board met for the first time. We have accomplished so much since that first Board meeting as the Conservancy has evolved and grown into our role as a state partner for ecosystem restoration and economic development in the Delta and Suisun Marsh.

Significant funding for the Conservancy arrived with the passage of Proposition 1 in late 2014. Staff went to work developing and implementing our Ecosystem Restoration and Water Quality grant program, that to date has resulted in 29 community-supported projects enhancing over 8,000 acres in the Delta. With the more recent passage of Proposition 68, the Conservancy has developed our Community and Economic Enhancement grant program that will fund projects that support the economic vitality of the Delta and serve its disadvantaged communities. In addition to these grant programs, the Conservancy has led and supported many important collaborative planning and outreach efforts. We have also been a driving force for the development of market-based incentives to address subsidence and related carbon emissions. The Conservancy was honored when the American Carbon Registry presented the 2017 Innovation Award to the developers of this landmark methodology for California wetland restoration.

The Delta Conservancy has maximized the funding and resources available to us, and our staff and Board have realized the intent of our enabling legislation and become a trusted and effective partner. The Conservancy has clearly demonstrated the value of a state partnership and what can be accomplished in the Delta when we work together.

I would like to personally thank all past and current Board members and Ex-Officio Legislative members for their guidance and contributions to our achievements. And to past staff, many of whom have gone on to significant leadership roles, and our current team of bright and dedicated public servants; thank you for all your hard work and for making the Conservancy a great organization.

Our stage is set for a bright future as we continue to engage the Delta community. What comes next for the Delta Conservancy will depend largely on available funding, there is no limit to what we can do if resourced to do it! Happy 10th Anniversary, Delta Conservancy!! Here’s to many more.
