Friends of the Estuary selected Aquatic Science Center’s Pulse of the Delta for an Outstanding Environmental Project Award in the category of Public Involvement and Education. It is one of six projects awarded this year. Thomas Jabusch received the award at the 2011 State of the Estuary Conference on behalf of the production team. Nominated by Pamela Creedon, Executive Officer of the Central Valley Regional Water Board, the Pulse of the Delta was selected in part due to its promise to provide much needed water quality information to a diverse audience. Modeled after the San Francisco Bay RMP’s Pulse of the Estuary, the emerging Delta RMP has launched the Pulse of the Delta as its first major product. Current plans are to publish the Pulse of the Delta annually. Thomas shares the recognition with an entire team of staff at Aquatic Science Center and the Central Valley Regional Water Board as well as all the contributors that helped make the Pulse of the Delta possible.
