The tale of two tunnels: Gov. Brown’s tainted BDCP process versus honestly solving the problem
Coalition response…Elected by the people of California, the Legislature acted in 2009 to establish a reliable water supply through the Delta and to restore the Delta’s ecosystem. The Bay Delta Conservation Plan proposes to accomplish those two goals by implementing an improved conveyance system that considers optilons including one with twin tunnels and also to restore 140,000 acres of habitat in the region. Scientists and researchers have worked for seven years to develop the proposal offered through BDCP. The first four chapters of the plan are available at http://baydeltaconservationplan.com/BDCPPlanningProcess/KeyAnnouncements.aspx and the remaining chapters are scheduled for release.
