Re "Salty risks for Delta's flow" (Page A1, June 9): The two tunnels intended to divert water from the Delta to the south are a Band-aid fix, but not a solution to the problem. For that much money, the state should build a desalinization plant in the south, powered by solar from the Mojave desert.
Otherwise, imagine a drought year, when the entire state has no drinkable water, no species of life in the Delta. I am curious what business interests are behind this ill-conceived plan that which will be the legacy to Jerry Brown.
Solve the problem, don't shift it!
