The Delta region is comprised of over 1200 miles of waterways protected by over 1000 miles of levees. The area is enjoyed and relied on by those seeking the rich argriculture of the region.
In 1839, John Sutter and 13 others traveled the delta region to search for settlement opportunities for others migrating from Europe. The group navigated the Delta waters, departing from Yerba Buena (San Francisco) and after 12 days they met up with the American River, making land at what would eventually become the capitol city (Sacramento).
A proposed twin-tunnel water conveyance project that would re-direct water flowing from the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers directly to man-made aqueducts headed to the south is a highly controversial project at this time. The Town encourages you to explore this project and learn more about it. A simple internet search will provide the information that will help you become more familiar with the project and its impacts on the Delta and Discovery Bay.
