Delta Conveyance Project Environmental Justice Community Survey
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) undertook the “Your Delta, Your Voice” survey to gather input from disadvantaged community members who live or work in the Delta. The survey was available online from September 30 through December 11, 2020. DWR arranged for Ag Innovations to lead survey development and outreach. They were supported by numerous partners and agency staff.
The objective of the survey was to inform DWR through gaining a better understanding of the priorities, values, and needs of Delta’s diverse communities. It also aimed to gather perspectives and information about how community members value, experience, and depend on the region’s cultural, recreational, natural, agricultural, and economic resources in order to identify how the project may impact those resources or potentially bring benefits to Delta communities.
The full Environmental Justice Community Survey Report and Executive Summary are available in additional languages on the Delta Conveyance Project’s Environmental Justice webpage.
