2018 Delta Discovery Voyage

We think the best way to develop wise users of our natural resources is through education. Every year, we reach more than 25,000 students through stimulating, age-appropriate and fun-filled educational experiences in the classroom, on a field trip—and even on a boat.


For eight weeks starting January 9, more than 4,000 students from across our service area will climb aboard the 90-foot research vessel Robert G. Brownlee. They’ll chart a course up the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta for a half-day adventure to learn about the primary source of their drinking water. The ship is owned and operated by the Marine Science Institute of Redwood City. Contra Costa Water District sponsors the voyages along with Central Contra Costa Sanitary District, Delta Diablo, Dean & Margaret Lesher Foundation, Mt. View Sanitary District, Golden State Water Company and Dow Chemical Company.

As a thank you to all the sponsors, the Marine Science Institute is offering CCWD employees and their families an opportunity to participate in the voyage on Saturday, January 27, from 1:30 – 3:30 p.m. If you would like to attend, please contact the Marine Science Institute directly at todd@sfbaymsi.org.
