Welcome to the Delta Coalition
Agriculture is the life-blood of the Delta with nearly 80% of all farmland classified as prime agricultural land. Preserving and enhancing the Delta’s agricultural industry is vital to the region, the state, and the nation. In calculating value-added manufacturing, the statewide impact of Delta agriculture is about 25,000 jobs, nearly $5.4 billion in economic output and over $2 billion in economic value. The leading BDCP proposal is a direct threat to Delta’s agricultural based economy.
The Delta Coalition opposes the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) and the Delta Stewardship Council’s (DSC) implementation of the enabling legislation (2009 Delta Water Package). Click here to read the Delta Coalition’s position statement in its entirety.
