This chapter presents recent scientific and technical findings and assessments to evaluate Delta export management strategies with respect to the environmental and water supply objectives for the Delta, measured in terms of native fish population viability and statewide economic costs of water supply. It employs formal decision analysis, incorporating the costs and opportunities of things going wrong and things going well for each export strategy. The analysis presented here aims to incorporate uncertainties explicitly, by considering ranges of values for costs and other outcomes, as well as responses to some major potential problems and opportunities.
