Westlands official working for DWR on Bay Delta Conservation Plan
by Dan Bacher
“There is a revolving door at the Department of Water Resources for water contractors to move in and out of positions within the Department,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta. “It is akin to the way lobbyists move in and out of government positions in Washington D.C. As more Californians learn about how a small group of special interests control our water future, their anger will match that of the general public toward lobbyists.” Photo of Clifton Court Forebay on the South Delta, the body of water created in 1969 that serves as the Mile Zero intake point of the California Aqueduct and feeds the Delta–Mendota Canal.
