From Stockton Record - Friday, June 22, 2012
Coalition response...A closer look at the two reports by UC Berkeley's David Sunding and UOP's Jeffrey Michael reveals that the study Sunding provides is an in-depth analysis on the economics of California water and the benefits that result from an enhanced water supply. This water supply, along with a restored Delta ecosystem, is the basis for the work currently being conducted by the Bay Delta Conservation Plan. Unfortunately, the report by Jeff Michael fails to assign any value to meeting either of the co-equal goals, which is the entire basis for the existence of BDCP.
From Lodi News-Sentinel - Friday, June 22, 2012
Coalition response...Twenty-five million Californians and millions of acres of farmland that grow a safe, healthy and economic food supply receive a portion of their water from the waters that flow through the Delta. Droughts and environmental regulations have reduced that water supply. In order to improve the reliability of that water supply, several efforts are now underway that would accomplish that desired reliability and restore the ecosystem of the Delta. It is unfortunate that opponents of these efforts will say almost anything in a public venue to mislead people about the work that is going on to secure California's water future. Rather than simply accept the comments from one point of view, people would be better served to seek the facts when it comes to water supply and the Delta environment.
