Coalition response...Claiming that water users south of the Delta do not care what happens in the Delta region is a fact less statement that only serves to heighten the rhetoric surrounding efforts to reach a solution to California's water dilemma. These water users have spent more than $150 million to fund the studies and research that includes Delta ecosystem restoration. California's water future is deserving of a continuing dialogue but it must be one that is reasonable and absent of statements that serve no purpose.

Coalition response...Despite what Rep. Garamendi would have people believe, the current Bay Delta Conservation Plan includes more than a "plumbing system." It is the result of years of study and research that features Delta ecosystem restoration, an improved conveyance system, restored habitat and more. He also incorrectly cites 15,000 cfs as the size of the proposed conveyance when that number is much smaller at only 9,000 cfs. Recent calls to consider an even smaller conveyance at 3,000 cfs fail to recognize that this lower size has already been studied by BDCP.

Critics of the current BDCP proposal continually raise the rhetoric that the Sacramento River and Delta will be drained. Nothing is further from the truth. Diversions will be closely governed and increased or decreased according to the amount of water available in the system. To view how the system will work, click here.

Securing a reliable water future for our State and at the same time protect the Delta requires thoughtful discussions and committed individuals and organizations seeking the best for all California.
