Delta plan would take north state's water

Published: Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 - 7:10 am

Re “One shot to save the Delta” (Forum, Dec. 1): Dennis McEwan needs to accept that the twin tunnels project (officially known as the Bay Delta Conservation Plan) is about transferring additional water from Northern California to the Central Valley and Southern California, with no thought to the environmental and economic devastation that will be created in the northern half of the state. The project has proposals for additional dams, which makes clear the true intention of the plan. Stewart Resnick and a few others took over the publicly developed Kern County Water Bank for private sale, with the blessing of the State Water Control Board and State Water Resources Department. Such action is a perfect example of what the citizens of California can expect in the future from our government. Gov. Jerry Brown is not protecting the general welfare of the people of California by supporting this project but rather using us to pay his political debts.
