Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta: Interactive Map

Envisioning California’s Delta As it Was

The Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is at the heart of California’s water supply. This inland delta, where two major rivers converge and mingle with San Francisco Bay tides, has been re-engineered and re-plumbed over the last 160 years to meet the needs of a growing state.

Little is known about the Delta as it once was. Now, as efforts get underway to save the Delta’s failing ecosystem, researchers at the San Francisco Estuary Institute are reconstructing this complex landscape using thousands of historical sources.

Driving 152... I wouldn't even think there was a Delta that included the San Joaquin.
I think I've seen it have any amount of water in it a few times.

Thanks for the post

Further north, driving along Hwy 140, the San Joaquin River cuts a wider path. And of course, Stockton, which resides along the San Joaquin River has one of the major seaports of California.

140 is north of 152 as you mentioned... and the river flows from south to north...
which says a lot about what has been done to the river

Personally I have never driven that stretch of 140. I'll do that this year sometime
when going to or fro when it is light out. Thanks
