As the drought drags on, the state has revealed its new, scaled-down plans—deconstructed by writer Joe Eaton—for rehabilitating the broken Delta. The Delta and its complicated plumbing and flows are also tackled by nine Estuary experts in our “Pivot” story. We asked them to share their views about old ways of doing things that no longer work, especially with sea level rise and climate change upon us, and their ideas for change. Other stories cover new ideas and technology for monitoring Delta levees, and new methods of tracking even the smallest pollutants—both natural and not so natural—that can affect the health of the Bay and people.
