The Delta's Emergency Drought Barrier: Why, Where, and How?

Last year I wrote about a recently published study of the ecological impacts of the emergency salinity barrier installed in the Delta in 2015, amidst a record-setting drought. Little did I know that we were less than a year away from another emergency drought barrier. This piece I wrote for Estuary News, published at the website Maven's Notebook, which covers water issues in California, provides all you need to know about the new barrier that went in this spring amidst increasingly severe drought.
