Water Resources & Environment

The Center has published several special reports on economic and policy issues surrounding California’s water resources and the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The largest of these studies was the Economic Sustainability Plan for the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta completed for the Delta Protection Commission. Some of the most cited reports are the Benefit-Cost Analysis of the Delta Water Conveyance Tunnels and the Employment Impacts of the 2009 drought. In addition, the Director of the Center frequently writes about water and Delta issues on the Valley Economy Blog.
