ABSTRACT
The article reports that engineers at the university of California, Los Angeles, are testing the security of the fragile system of levees in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta. They are using mobile field shakers to simulate earthquakes and early tests have proved that Delta leeves are surprisingly resilient. The Delta will supply water to the Central Valley Project.
