LOWER YOLO RESTORATION
The Lower Yolo Restoration Project represents an ideal location to restore tidal wetlands in the Sacramento‐San Joaquin Delta. The project is an early action consistent with the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and will meet a portion of the state and federal requirement to restore 8,000 acres of wetland habitat in the Delta.

THE CALIFORNIA DELTA
The Delta plays a major role in the state’s prosperity by providing at least a portion of the drinking water for 24 million Californians, fueling a $31 billion agricultural industry and serving as an important habitat to more than 750 animal and plant species and many non-native species, including waterfowl, birds of prey, sport fish and species listed as threatened or endangered: Delta smelt, Chinook salmon and steelhead.
