About Us

Our Mission Statement

Save the California Delta Alliance (STCDA) is a public interest association committed to working with local, state, and federal government to create a balanced state water plan that keeps the California Delta a safe and healthy environment for all who live here while providing clean water exports for other areas of the state.

STCDA recognizes the damage that excessive water exports have caused and seeks to restore and protect the Delta while protecting the farmers, boaters, and communities that call the Delta home.

What Makes us Different

We are different from other Delta organizations. We are a grassroots organization. We are all unpaid volunteers (even our Legal Council works pro bono). We are real people who live in the Delta and represent Delta interests. Donations go to hiring expert witnesses and others to help us fight against the Delta Tunnel(s) and other destructive projects that will cause significant harm to Delta communities.

Board Meetings

The next Board Meeting is [unscheduled]. Board Meetings are held in the Discovery Bay Yacht Club Bilge Room (downstairs) unless otherwise posted.

Since DBYC is a private club, non-member attendees must notify a board member before they attend and must register upstairs in the yacht club as a guest. Email stcda@NoDeltaGates.com if you want to attend.

The prior Board Meeting was held Tuesday, September 3, 2019.

Town Hall

A Town Hall is planned in 2019. Stay tuned for more details.

Our Website Address(es)

We have several website address links to help you find these webpages:

  • www.NoDeltaTunnels.com – Our current fight is to stop the tunnels, so our main website address is NoDeltaTunnels.com.
  • www.STCDA.org – The official link to the Save the California Delta Alliance STCDA (note this is “.org”).
  • NoDeltaGates.com – The organization was formed in 2009 to stop the “2-Gates Project”. The 2-Gates were originally scheduled for implementation in 2009 and are now on-hold. Or first website was NoDeltaGates.com. You can still find us using this URL.


Your tax deductible donations to STCDA have been used to-date to hire experts to support our legal positions (e.g., to testify about the water quality in the South Delta if the tunnels are built, to testify about impacts on recreation from tunnel construction). A small portion of donations are used for the direct costs of making the public aware of the tunnels and other water diversion projects.

STCDA is a voluntary organization and does not, nor does it anticipate, paying any salaries or wages.

Or make checks payable to “STCDA” and mail to:

    P.O. Box 1760
    Discovery Bay, CA 94505

Save the California Delta Alliance (STCDA) is a 501(c)3 non-profit.
