Re "Wait to debate water bond, and then improve it" (Editorials, Sept. 5): Placer County Water Agency is extremely concerned about the redirected impacts of the state's Bay Delta Conservation Plan on our region and so are members of Congress. On Aug. 30, seven members representing the region called on the governor to delay releasing the BDCP, calling the project "flawed." The governor needs to take this message seriously and consider the concerns of these federal leaders as well as Northern California stakeholders.
BDCP is a "statewide plan" that regrettably forgets the northern portion of the state. As it stands now, BDCP shows Northern California reservoirs such as Shasta and Folsom lakes with such drastically low water levels that local utilities won't be able to provide reliable water to customers at least once every decade. That's unacceptable.
Gov. Jerry Brown, invite Northern California to the table. The voices of our economic, environmental and cultural future depend on it.
