Accessibility

The Delta Protection Commission is committed to making its website equally accessible for all visitors. The website is currently being designed, developed, and maintained to comply with California Government Code Sections 7405 and 11135 and the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG).

The Delta Protection Commission continuously works on website accessibility improvements to meet the standards specified in WCAG 2.1 Level AA.

We strive to maintain all information at acceptable accessibility levels, but some of the older and historical documents, which provide value to our website visitors, may not meet the defined standards. If you are unable to view or access one of these documents, please contact us for assistance.
