Science Program Support for CALFED Water Quality Program

A critical role of the CALFED Science Program is to facilitate scientific review in support of CALFED Program objectives. Activities associated with water supply reliability, water quality, ecosystem restoration, and levee integrity all benefit from periodic reviews by CALFED Science Program established independent review panels. The review and recommendations provided by these panels help insure that the investments being made in support of Bay-Delta planning and decision-making are supported by the best available scientific knowledge.

CALFED Water Quality Program Stage 1 Final Assessment

In December 2007, the CALFED Water Quality Program requested that the CALFED Science Program review the science underlying the CALFED Water Quality Program Stage 1 Final Assessment Report (Final Assessment). The primary purpose of the Final Assessment is to assess the progress made towards meeting CALFED water quality targets and alternative treatment technologies. In March 2008, the CALFED Science Program agreed to conduct such a review. The Review Panel has completed their review of the Final Assessment and supporting documents. The lead reviewer presented a summary of the draft review comments to the Bay-Delta Public Advisory Committee, Water Quality Subcommittee on July 10, 2008. The final review panel comments are available at the link below.
