(AP) — The California Department of Water Resources will commission a new research vessel next week.
The department will hold a ceremony and display the vessel Sentinel to news media on Monday in Sacramento.
The department says the floating laboratory is critical to maintaining water quality in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and San Francisco Bay.
The Sentinel is a 60-foot aluminum catamaran. Its predecessor, the San Carlos, dates to 1976.
