The Department of Water Resources (DWR) is responsible for managing and protecting California’s water. DWR works with other agencies to benefit the state’s people, and to protect, restore and enhance the natural and human environments.
Offering outdoor adventure to children with special needs, DWR has co-sponsored “Catch A Special Thrill” (C.A.S.T.) events at State Water Project reservoirs since 2005. On June 15, the first-ever C.A.S.T event was held in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, where 34 disabled and disadvantaged children gathered at Brannan Island State Recreation Area for a day of boating, fishing and education about the Delta as the hub of California’s water supply system. The Rio Vista event included a representative from the office of State Assemblyman Jim Frazier. For information about C.A.S.T. events at California reservoirs, visit http://water.ca.gov/cast/
