In 2009, the California State Legislature passed major water reform legislation. Among other things, that legislation created the position of Delta Watermaster. The Legislature's intent in creating the Delta Watermaster is hotly debated. Some say it was to crack down on allegedly illegal water diversions in the Delta. Others say the position’s focus on Delta water diversions simply distracts attention from other causes of declines in the Delta ecosystem. The purpose of this program is to hear from the Delta Watermaster, Craig Wilson, about the activities undertaken in the two-plus years since the position was created and about planned future activities. These activities range from compliance and enforcement actions, investigations of water use, and preparation of policy level reports on key water issues.
