Delta Independent Science Board appointments

The Delta Reform Act of 2009 requires that the Delta Stewardship Council appoint up to ten nationally or internationally prominent scientists to a new Delta Independent Science Board.  Members will serve five-year terms, for no more than two terms.  Acting as successor to the CALFED Independent Science Board, the Delta Independent Science Board will oversee scientific research and programs that are undertaken concerning Delta management, and it is also required to review those programs at least once every four years.  At this week’s meeting, the Stewardship Council appointed the following members to the new board: Brian Atwater, Elizabeth Canuel, Tracy Collier, Mike Healey, Edward Houde, Judy Meyer, Jeffrey Mount, Richard Norgaard, Vincent Resh, and John Wiens.  Click here to read more about the experiences and perspectives that these scientists bring to the Delta Independent Science Board.
