The San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP or Program) is the culmination of 18 years of litigation between the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC) and the United States and Friant Division contractors of the Central Valley Project (CVP).  A stipulation of Settlement (Settlement) was reached on September 13, 2006. The Settlement includes both Restoration and Water Management goals. The state’s participation in the Program is directed by the terms in a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the Settling Parties and the state, effective for the duration of the Settlement and terminating on December 31, 2026.


CDFW participates in the SJRRP at nearly all levels with a core CDFW team engaged in Chinook Salmon reintroduction actions and planning, fish facility operations, research and monitoring efforts supporting population and habitat goals, site-specific projects, recreation, and drought actions.


Gerald Hatler began working for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) in 1997.  His experience has ranged from conducting biological studies to evaluate salmon survival, habitat conditions, and fish passage to stream resource evaluations, species/habitat protection and public use of natural resources.


He has been involved with salmon restoration projects on the Stanislaus, Tuolumne, and Merced Rivers and, most recently, the San Joaquin River.  He has been the CDFW lead on the San Joaquin River Restoration Program (SJRRP) since 2007 and manages the State effort to assist with implementation of the SJRRP Settlement Agreement.
