Add comment on:Statewide Coalition Sues to Halt Delta Plan, Water Export Tunnels
“The Delta Reform Act gave the Delta Stewardship Council an historic opportunity to remedy 40 years of water policy failures. Instead, the council failed to use the best available science - biological or economic - and adopted a status quo program that fails to fix the Delta or the water supply problem,” said Santa Barbara resident Carolee Krieger, executive director of the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), a statewide water advocacy organization. “The council failed to honor its own mandate: the adoption of an effective strategy for the distribution of water and the preservation of the Delta.” The peripheral tunnels will divert a large portion of the flow of the Sacramento River for use by corporate agribusiness and oil companies.
