The Dam Problem for the Bay-Delta Estuary

DELTA FLOWS 4/4/21: The Dam Problem for the Bay-Delta Estuary

When I was 17, my parents took us kids to Las Vegas. On our way back to Stockton, we decided to stop at the Hoover Dam. I thought it was one of the coolest places ever. I was amazed at not just its size, but also that it was divided right into the middle of two states. I was able to cross into Arizona in one step and hop right back into Nevada. I also loved how they paid respect to the Navajo Tribe. This was the first time I had visited a dam and was able to see it in action.

The dams that are built in the Sacramento and San Joaquin River Watershed protect thousands of people and billions of dollar’s worth of agriculture but they are far too old and far too many of them need repair. Some unnecessary dams are drying rivers and putting business in front of the environment.
