SJAFCA co-sponsored and participated in a two-day levee tour May 12-13, 2010 presented by the Water Education Foundation. The tour which began and ended in Stockton focused on the South Delta and Lower San Joaquin River. Some of the levee tour stops included Bear Creek, Paradise Cut, Jones Tract, and Smith Canal. There were fifty-one participants and an even greater attendance at the tour's dinner held in the evening on May 12th at the Hilton in Stockton. Tom Zuckerman, Chair of the University of the Pacific's Board of Regents, spoke at the dinner covering the relationship of flood issues and water supply. Overall, a great turn out in which SJAFCA was proud to co-sponsor!
