PLEASE DOUBLE-CHECK MEETING PLACES AND TIMES AT ABOVE LINK.

There was very little Delta representation at the Concord meeting last week we hear from a couple of folks who did attend. At the meeting the council representatives re-stated their “coequal goals” – providing a more reliable water supply for California and protecting, restoring and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. The coequal goals shall be achieved in a manner that protects and enhances the unique cultural, recreational, natural resource and agricultural values of the Delta as an evolving place.

Isenberg stressed that by establishing the goals as coequal, no priority may be given to one over another, hence the water supply can not be underscored below the health of the Delta.

The local attendee who emailed STCDA expressed strong concern for how this will affect us locally here in the Delta. But felt if we have any chance in this matter, it will be with them on our side. They will be establishing the laws that will govern us. Please do not hesitate to submit comment and urge others to do so.

We have until January 28th for public comment to be submitted to their website http://www.deltacouncil.ca.gov or via email at deltaplanscoping@deltacouncil.ca.gov.
