Action Alert: Stop the Schwarzenegger/Feinstein Water Bond!

Thursday Aug 14th, 2008 11:16 AM
Please call today your local Assembly Representative, State Senator, Governor Schwarzenegger, and Senator Diane Feinstein and tell them that you are against the proposed water bond, urges Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla of Restore the Delta.
Restore the Delta is asking you to take special action on behalf of protecting the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.

Please call today your local Assembly Representative, State Senator, Governor Schwarzenegger, and Senator Diane Feinstein and tell them that you are against the proposed water bond for the following reasons:

1) The peripheral canal will not solve the crisis in the Delta or make more water for California.

2) There are bond funds left from previous to begin doing the work needed to protect Delta levees.

3) The Department of Water Resources, while working on projects on behalf of the State Water Contractors, fails to answer for the people of the Delta "How much fresh water is required for the health of the Delta estuary?"

4) The peripheral canal will not restore fish populations.

5) The peripheral canal will destroy the $ 2 billion Delta agricultural economy.

6) This water bond will not help to protect the lives and property of the 400,000 people living in the Delta.

7) We want a water bond that would support aggressive water conservation measures, regional ground water clean up and desalinization projects, ground water banking in historic floods plains, regional reservoirs to support ground water banking, water recycling, and projects making use of storm water runoff. Employing new technologies, rather than clinging to outdated methods, will give us more water to work with in California for people and fish.

Please call today. Below are phone numbers for Governor Schwarzenegger and Senator Feinstein's offices.
