The Department of Water Resources (DWR) undertook the Your Delta, Your Voice survey to gather input from Tribal members and disadvantaged, minority, low-income, and otherwise underrepresented community members who live or work in the Delta.
The objective of the survey was to inform DWR’s Delta Conveyance Project planning by better understanding the priorities, values, and needs of the 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 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 input collected through the survey will help shape the planning of the Delta Conveyance Project, including the preparation of the Environmental Impact Report under the California Environmental Quality Act.
