Delta peripheral canal – your action required!


The Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District is proposing to build a peripheral canal around the Delta in order to divert more water to Los Angeles.  This may have disastrous consequences for Discovery Bay.  Right now the L.A. Water district and other water contractors are running the show for this canal project.
As a first step in responding to this canal, we need your help to get the Water Contractors out of the driver’s seat.  And we need it quickly !!!

Please send an email to BDO@usbr.gov .

You can just cut and paste the below language and/or add your own thoughts:

I am a resident of Discovery Bay and I object to putting the Water Contractors in charge of deciding the future of the Delta.  The Water Contractors should have no say in the environmental review of any proposed peripheral canal.  And when do we get our say?  We live on the Delta and stand to be most impacted by any canal.  You should appoint a representative to the steering committee for the canal to represent the interests of people who live in the Delta, earn their living from Delta related business, and use the Delta for navigation.

UPDATE: Our legal counsel Michael Brodsky has
sent the following document to the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation director
Donald Glaser in order to allow us to appeal the impending decision
regarding the peripheral canal.The document is at the following link:

You can voice your support for the concerns outlined in this document by writing to:

Donald R. Glaser
Regional Director
United States Bureau of Reclamation
Bay-Delta Office
801 I Street
Suite 140
Sacramento, CA 95814

or by emailing BDO@usbr.gov
