State must achieve a Delta water solution


From Fresno Bee – Friday, Aug. 19, 2011

Coalition response...This editorial gets it right, yet some critics will claim that fixing the Delta is nothing but a water grab and does not truly benefit California. They are wrong. Protecting the Delta’s ecosystem and securing a reliable water supply benefits our entire state. While water is delivered southward from the Delta to San Joaquin Valley farmers and cities and also Southern California, residents in the San Francisco east bay and south through Santa Clara and San Benito counties also benefit.

The result of this water flow not only provides the drinking supply for 25 million Californians but it also spurs production of millions of dollars of farm commodities and manufactured goods. As bad as our state’s economy is today, imagine what it would be like without the production spurred by California’s water supply.

Brown reaffirms support for Delta-killing peripheral canal

From IndyBay Media – Friday, Aug. 19, 2011

Coalition response...A process with goals to restore the Delta’s ecosystem and provide a reliable supply of water benefits all of California and not one region over another---that is the goal of the Delta Stewardship Council. Gov. Brown made his recent remarks based on the ongoing efforts of the Council. A true restoration of the Delta’s ecosystem is a primary goal of the Council but critics of these efforts continue to focus on conveyance as a threat to the Delta. These critics do not want to “restore” the Delta, they simply want to keep it the way it is.
