San Joaquin River Restoration Program


The San Joaquin River Restoration Program is a river restoration program developed for the 150-mile segment of California’s second largest river between Friant Dam and the confluence of the Merced River.   The implementing agencies include the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service, the CA Department of Water Resources, and the CA Department of Fish and Game. 

A program management plan outlines the responsibilities and implementation strategy for the program agencies.  Technical Work Groups include: Water Management, Engineering and Design, Environmental Compliance and Permitting, and Fishery Management.  A Restoration Administrator will make recommendations to the Secretary of the Interior on program actions.
