The main objectives of the survey of Sacramento, California Delta levee system were to determine sediment transport and underwater scour to critical levee structures. The Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta is an expansive inland river delta and estuary in northern California in the United States. It is formed at the western edge of the Central Valley by the confluence of the Sacramento and San Joaquin rivers and lies just east of where the rivers enter Suisun Bay (an upper arm of San Francisco Bay).
