The Town of Hood Fights Back


Since the start of the tunnel project (Bay Delta Conservation Plan, then WaterFix, now the single tunnel Delta Conveyance Project), a repeated concern by everyone, and a big part of STCDA’s push back, has been the location of the intakes for the new pumps. The intakes continue to be planned to be put right on top of the tiny town of Hood.

The Delta Protection Committee penned a letter years ago to the Delta Stewardship Council saying the plan would cause “blight” on the small legacy towns. STCDA concurred.

Karen Mann who was a representative on the DWR’s Stakeholder Engagement Committee raised the point time and again that the intakes must be moved. All pleas fell on deaf ears. Time and time and again.

Well, the town of Hood just fought back: https://nodeltagates.files.wordpress.com/2021/10/10-22-2021-hood-letter-to-governor.pdf
