Coalition response...Concern with the quality of the Delta's water and ecosystem is an integral part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan. People need to remember that the BDCP and the two tunnels proposed last week by Gov. Brown are still a work in progress. Separating water used to grow food and to meet the water supply needs of 25 million Californians from the water needed for fish is common sense. That's what the Delta tunnels are designed to do.

Despite what this editorial suggests and others have claimed, new water was never an objective of BDCP. The $150 million spent by water suppliers, not taxpayers, was to develop a reliable supply of already-contracted-for water. 

Comparing the tunnels to the proposed Peripheral Canal of 1982 should include some additional facts. The 1982 proposal would have sent a maximum of 22,000 cubic feet per second of water through the canal. The size of the planned diversion is a much smaller 9,000 cfs.
