Sun Jul 28 2013 (Updated 07/29/13)New California Water Grab for Fracking and Agribusiness
Sun Jul 28 2013 (Updated 07/29/13)Groups Say Billions to be Spent on Peripheral Tunnels Serve Only to Pad Corporate Pockets
Governor Brown has proposed building two massive $50 billion water tunnels to divert the Sacramento River to corporate interests in the Central Valley. Fracking opponents say the peripheral tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta could play a role in increasing fracking in California.
“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,” said Adam Scow, the California Campaigns Director of Food and Water Watch. “Not only would we spend billions on a wasteful project that serves only to pad the pockets of corporate interests, we would be helping oil and gas companies contaminate our already precious water with fracking. Stand up and tell Governor Brown that we won’t pay the water bill for agribusinesses and oil companies."
