Info

The aging levee system of the San Francisco Bay Delta protects not only local communities, but the fresh-water supply for the southern half of the State. Robin Miller, a Biogeochemist with the U.S. Geological Survey, monitors a carbon capture farming project. The project, started in the mid-nineties, demonstrates how carbon can be captured from the air by native grasses. This technique has the added benefit of reversing land subsidence, which has been placing increasing pressure on the more than 1,000 miles of delta levees.
