Gebhard: Another attempted hijacking of our water
Coalition response…The Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) is being developed to provide a reliable supply of water to 25 million Californians and thousands of farmers. This is water they already have a right to receive. BDCP will also restore the Delta ecosystem as more than a 100,000 acres of habitat will be created that protects fish.
Those who benefit from the increased water reliability and the ecosystem improvements will pay their share of their costs associated with BDCP. San Joaquin Valley farms, which are mostly family operations, will continue to provide a healthy and affordable food supply that Californians enjoy.
