Governor Brown brings new hope to end our Delta deficits

From The Yodeler – Wednesday, July 6, 2011

Coalition response...This comment falls into the trap of touting half-truths to make a point in order to push an agenda. It first references a water board’s study “that the Delta needs a 75% increase in net flows” but fails to explain that officials of the water board publicly stated that more research needs to be done and that the 75% number should not be used for policy making. Secondly, it touts a NAS review of BDCP efforts but again fails to explain that the work reviewed had already been updated by BDCP studies before the NAS response was made public, which was also recognized by NAS members. Yes, let’s work toward the twin-goals of a restored Delta ecosystem and a reliable water supply but let’s do it with science and facts.
