Redding, California Removal[edit]

Both Shasta County and Redding is deep in bear country; it is not part of the central valley. Del Norte, Siskiyou, Modoc, Humbolt, Trinity, and Shasta county is bear country. Most of Mendocino County is also. Central Valley begins at Red Bluff and it ends to till you get to Ventura County. I am going to remove Redding. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 156.99.38.132 (talk) 21:40, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

A valley is determined by geography, not by the animals in it. Sam Tomato (talk) 20:23, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

San Joaquin Valley / Central Valley (California)[edit]

There is a lot of duplication and overlap between San Joaquin Valley and Central Valley (California), which are effectively the same thing. I suggest merging. Fig (talk) 11:44, 28 July 2009 (UTC)

Renaming article to "Central Valley, California"[edit]

I just reverted the move of this article to Central Valley, California, because there was no discussion or test of consensus.

  • Oppose move. Towns in the USA are disambiguated with commas, while natural features (such as valley, rivers, and mountains) are disambiguated with parentheses. I thus believe that the article should remain at Central Valley (California)hike395 (talk) 03:01, 16 January 2014 (UTC)

Include Contra Costa and Solano Counties?[edit]

Apparently, the region maps on both http://www.visitcalifornia.com/Explore/ and http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=873 include eastern Contra Costa County and Solano County as part of the valley. Thoughts about mentioning it in this article too? Zzyzx11 (talk) 07:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)

"west valley"/"east valley"[edit]

This Matter article: https://medium.com/matter/why-the-california-drought-is-all-your-fault-55f81a947ce2 mentions a "west valley" and "east valley" quite often. It would be nice to have that explained here. ArthurDent006.5 (talk) 08:48, 30 December 2014 (UTC)

Remove El Dorado County[edit]

El Dorado County is not part of the Central Valley (see the cited reference -- it excludes EDC, which is consistent with common understanding). The green county map as well as the lists farther down the page should be revised. I tried making the revisions myself but they wouldn't save. Pcheeta (talk) 05:42, 7 June 2016 (UTC)

Create Geology section[edit]

It would be interesting to know more about the geology, including the processes that created the California Central Valley. SlowJog (talk) 22:16, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

About the size of the Dominican Republic?[edit]

I find the comment in the lead about the Central Valley being "about the size of the Dominican Republic" rather unhelpful. I'm Australian, not American, and while I have a general idea of where the Dominican Republic is, I have no feeling at all for how big it is. Maybe Americans, who would be most readers of this article, would know better than me, but it seems an odd analogy to be using. Perhaps a comparison with another area within the USA might be more helpful. HiLo48 (talk) 00:17, 7 July 2019 (UTC)

The valley[edit]

The name section says The Central Valley is commonly known to residents simply as "the Valley.". That is not helpful; the residents of the San Fernando Valley also say the Valley when referring to the SFV. I suppose I will remove the comment from the article.

I also added a comment about the TV series The Big Valley; feel free to improve that. Sam Tomato (talk) 20:34, 31 July 2019 (UTC)
