About Us

The San Joaquin Tributaries Authority’s mission is to promote sound, environmentally responsible solutions to water supply management within a framework that recognizes the historic rights of its member agencies and the concerns of ratepayers.

Don Pedro Powerhouse

  • The SJTA’s member agencies advocate the development, management and reasonable
    beneficial use of our water supply through cost-effective, fact-based and environmentally balanced approaches.
  • We operate fiscally solvent, self-sufficient agencies serving growers whose advanced conservation techniques and other innovations ensure water supplies are managed in the most efficient possible manner.
  • Convinced that the one-dimensional solutions commonly applied to water management challenges in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta are doomed to fail, the SJTA pushes for comprehensive approaches that reflect fairness and are anchored in science.
  • Working with a network of other partners, the SJTA strives to preserve the sustainability of our state’s water system through wise stewardship and regional solutions that blend environmental sensitivity with public needs.
