|Curtailment of Delta ISB Activities||
As discussed at recent Delta ISB meetings, the current appointment structure of Delta ISB members necessitates greatly curtailing the agenda and activities of the Delta ISB to a much lower level. Substantial delays in many of the Delta ISB’s anticipated and legislatively mandated reviews, products, and activities are expected. The Delta ISB is committed to supporting science for the Delta's problems and problem-solving, and looks forward to returning to its high level of productivity as soon as the State fully resolves this issue.
The Delta ISB will meet to hear from representatives from State and federal agencies to learn about their organization, what science it does in the Sacramento San Joaquin Delta, and how their organization supports or utilizes adaptive management.
This section describes the highlights. For more information about the meeting, refer to the agenda below.
The agenda items listed below may be considered in a different order pursuant to the determination of the Delta ISB chair. Times listed on the agenda are approximate only. At the discretion of the Delta ISB, all items appearing on this agenda, whether expressly listed for action, may be deliberated upon and may be subject to action.
