The Delta Independent Science Board is a ten-member board of prominent scientists from across the nation who evaluate the broad range of scientific programs that support adaptive management of the Delta, and provide oversight through periodic reviews of research, monitoring, and assessment programs.
The Delta Reform Act established the Delta Independent Science Board (or DISB), which replaced the previous CalFed science board. The DISB is housed within the Delta Stewardship Council. Click here for the current DISB members.
Since its inception, the DISB has produced reports on restoration, adaptive management, water quality, invasive species, water supply reliability, and other important topics. They have also reviewed and provided input on important documents that inform decision-making, such as the Council’s Delta Plan amendments and environmental review documents for Delta conveyance.
