Bay and Delta bulletins

Big water stuff going on as the authorities struggle to set river flows adequate for fish, try to get their minds around sea level rise, and brace for wetter floods and dryer droughts as climate change kicks in. For Estuary News I reported the Resilient by Design showcase of solutions for cities menaced by rising tides (May) and the biennial Bay-Delta Science Conference (September). And I’ve penned a new intro to the Bay Institute’s  report about the state of the vast watershed draining to the Golden Gate, From the Sierra to the Sea. First published in 1998, it is about to be reissued, with update. (Hint: Things aren’t getting better.)
