Delta Channel Depletion (DCD v1.0) is an extension of Delta Evapotranspiration of Applied Water (DETAWv2.0). Based on the estimation of Delta ground surface water balance by DETAW v2.0, DCD v1.0 simulates the daily channel depletions, including diversions, drainages and seepages, in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta and distributes them on the Delta Simulation Model 2(DSM2) nodes. The package includes the model code, model inputs, technical reports, preliminary user’s manual, and necessary software to support the model.
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water resources. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the State’s people and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.
