Coalition response...This author goes to great lengths to characterize anyone who disagrees with her as insensitive to the needs of fish and the Delta ecosystem. Farmers and public water agencies south of the Delta have never denied that the Delta ecosystem is in need of restoration or that fish species are suffering. It is in the best interest of these farmers and public water agencies that improvements be made to the Delta ecosystem and its fish populations. Achieving these improvements will bring reliability to a water supply system for 25 million Californians and the farms that grow a safe and healthy food supply that many of us rely upon. This is why they have spent millions of dollars to find solutions.
Rather than dream up a mythical checklist that only serves a biased and opinionated viewpoint, California would be better served to have the energy expended on such efforts redirected toward reaching meaningful water solutions.
