Is the Delta Plan off track? No - not yet


By Nick Di Croce, Environmental Water Caucus

From Aquafornia - Monday, Dec. 12, 2011

Coalition response...This presentation of whether the BDCP is "getting off the track" is based on the viewpoints of an organization with a goal of less water for growing a healthy and safe food supply and 25 million Californians. The co-equal goals of the Delta Stewardship Plan is not to decrease California's available water supply, as suggested in point #2. Rather it is to make that water supply a reliable source; there are no preconditions relating to volume. Point #4 calls for the abandonment of thousands of farm acres that are some of the most productive farmland in the world. The efforts of the BDCP and the Delta Stewardship Council has moved California closer to a reliable water supply for the future while providing needed economic benefits. To walk away from these efforts would be disastrous.
