Delta Region Areawide Aquatic Weed Project

Welcome

The California Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta hosts many unique ecosystems and forms the hub of California’s water supply. The invasion of aquatic weeds threatens ecosystems, impedes restoration efforts, and is economically and sociologically detrimental to the Delta.
