Sweetheart Deal for Westlands!

WRITE YOUR U.S. CONGRESS REPRESENTATIVES and OBAMA today (or soon) … It’s not to late for us to still try to have input into a “deal” being made with Westlands Water District. Details below. This deal still needs to be approved by Congress.

Westlands Water District is one of the worst offenders of overusing Delta Water. The district is on the west side near I-5. The deal would guarantee the district vast amounts of California’s water to sustain the irrigation of toxic soils filled with selenium. This is horrible for the Delta, for Taxpayers, and for California.

The deal includes providing Delta water at lower prices, without acreage limits, and with permanent entitlements. This is where the almond orchards have expanded out-of-control during the drought and this deal has no acreage limits! It is definitely going the wrong way.

I had thought it was a “done deal” when I saw the notice two months ago, but just found out Congress still needs to approve it. Letters (emails, etc.) to the House and Senate representatives could still make a difference.
