This Overview describes the waterways,
highways, levees, historic flooding, water supply systems and political
boundaries of the Delta to convey a basic understanding of the complexity
of the Delta and its significance to the people of California. A PDF version
of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta Overview is available on the World
Wide Web by clicking here.
The Overview is based upon the Sacramento-San Joaquin
Delta Atlas (Delta Atlas) and contains updated information for certain
topics contained in the Atlas. The Delta Atlas was published in 1995 and
