In a follow-up report published by experts at the San Francisco Estuary Institute say there is still hope of bringing backk at least a portion of the largest estuary on the west coast of the Americas.
Their broad plan calls for fundamental changes to the mostly agricultural landscape that exists today. They propose thick bands of forests along Delta waterways, sprawling wetlands much larger than the isolated patches found today, and rebirth of tiny streams that once ran through the Delta which provided refuge for native. The scientists also called for greater freshwater flows through out the Delta system along with controlled floodwaters to help fish spawn.
