Add comment on:Delta advocates call for cost-benefit analysis of peripheral tunnels
Jane Wagner-Tyack, Restore the Delta policy analyst, stated, “The State has refused to conduct a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis, in violation of its own policies. This leads to the conclusion that the governor doesn’t want the people of California to know whom the Peripheral Tunnels would primarily benefit, what the true costs of the Peripheral Tunnels are, who would pay, and how much, or that there is a more cost-effective solution.” Photo: Governor Jerry Brown is fast-tracking the construction of the peripheral tunnels, a $54.1 billion government boondoggle that will lead to the extinction of Sacramento River Chinook salmon, Central Valley steelhead, Delta and longfin smelt, green sturgeon and other fish species.
