Add comment on:Groups oppose any tunnels funding in state water bond
Californians for Fair Water Policy is opposing any water bond measure that includes funding to mitigate for the environmental destruction caused by Governor Jerry Brown's Bay Delta Conservation Plan to build the peripheral tunnels. “Beneficiaries should pay for habitat required to mitigate the negative impacts of the tunnels,” said Adam Scow, California Campaigns Director Food & Water Watch. “It’s absurd that Governor Brown wants to make us taxpayers pay to redirect the Sacramento River so that oil companies and huge agribusinesses can make even more profits.” Adam Scow of Food and Water Watch speaks at the Valley Water Consortium's water conference, H2O #2, on Saturday, May 10, 2014 in Fresno.
