There has been an ongoing conversation about the importance of thinking about the San Francisco Estuary holistically as a connected system, rather than siloing the Bay, Delta, and watersheds. While there are governance barriers to managing the system as one, scientifically speaking it is important not to ignore the influence they have on each other. The purpose of this brown bag series is to contribute to the conversation about Bay-Delta linkages. Ongoing management efforts focused on water quality issues will be used as a way to explore the challenges and benefits related to thinking of the system as one.
