Abstract: The Bay-Delta Water Quality Control Program is a comprehensive study designed to develop a water quality control program for the San Francisco Bay-Delta area of California. The Program's planning studies cover a period of 50 yr into the future. The Bay-Delta system is complex. Its water quality is influenced not only by steadily increasing waste loads but also by upstream water development which is changing the hydraulic regimen of a substantial portion of the system. The scope and organization of the Program is described as well as its approach to the development of a comprehensive water quality control plan. Particular emphasis is placed on the influence water resource development projects, located upstream from the estuary, have on the planning process.
