DSC suggests DWR withdraw the Tunnel Consistency Request


Nov 15&16, 2018 was the Delta Stewardship Council meeting to review their Staff’s findings about the WaterFix (Delta Tunnels).

Here is STCDA’s Briefing to the DSC. The plan was for the Council to vote in December whether to accept their staff’s recommendations to vote that the Delta Tunnels (WaterFix) is “Inconsistent” with the Delta Plan or not.

Randy Fiorini, DSC Chairman, suggested that the DWR withdraw their request that the WaterFix (Tunnel Project) is consistent with the Delta Plan (based on the Council Staff’s findings of inconsistency). That would mean that the DWR has to go back and rework the plan to address our issues of (1) Not reducing reliance on the Delta and (2) Not protecting the Delta as a Place during the construction phase.

Else DWR can take their chances that the DSC will vote in their favor in December.

Here’s details of the meeting from Maven’s Notebook.
