Re "Salty risks for Delta's flow" (Page A1, June 9): Thank you for again keeping before us what lies ahead in California's newly-induced water war. My only criticism: Its visuals make it appear the arguments are balanced. They are not.
Gov. Jerry Brown's two-plus tunnel proposal, if finally completed, would drain so much fresh water from Northern California it would ruin our famed agricultural production. The Westlands Water District has not resolved the problem of leaching toxic selenium from excess watering of hillside orchards. The feds should reclaim those San Joaquin uplands --it was an honest mistake to yield them for irrigation in the first place.
As to Southern California, let's contribute state funds to a desalination project for those poor folks. They don't need to steal our water.
