More info about the Staff recommendation against the Tunnels


Here’s more about the Delta Stewardship Council staff recommending against the tunnels. Deirdre Des Jardins (California Water Research)’s testimony on sea level rise was also agreed with by the staff, North Delta C.A.R.E.S. (Barbara Daly) testified against the legacy town damage that would occur, STCDA on all of the impacts up and down the Delta, and other testimonies were presented during the two-day Delta Stewardship Meeting October 24 & 25. What a great effort by the groups battling the horrible Delta Tunnel Plan!

Here’s Dan Batcher’s writeup: https://fishsniffer.com/index.php/2018/11/08/stewardship-council-staff-finds-delta-tunnels-inconsistent-with-delta-plan/?fbclid=IwAR3vqU6Kmj0h87HMD7fordVeettamR4LySld4WRB9wZ-MvjKjTbPOtC9z-g

Next step – the Council will vote (in December). Fingers crossed that the declare the Tunnels inconsistent with the Delta Plan which will mean the tunnels cannot go forward as is.

That would be a major (and we hope final) blow for the tunnels. Although I imagine someone who wants the tunnels would then sue. Stay tuned . . .
