Editorial hits mark on Bay-Delta water plan

Published: Friday, Dec. 13, 2013 - 11:10 am

Re "Bay-Delta water study leaves big questions" (Editorials, Dec. 12) The Sacramento Bee editorial board is on the right track. As we begin the process of combing through the Bay Delta Conservation Plan's 34,000 pages, we're looking for answers to many of the same questions about funding and governance. We're also looking to see if the document answers a major question: How will the state operate this massive project? Moving millions of acre-feet of water from the Delta to export intakes is no small feat. We're hoping the state identifies how it will manage water exports while understanding that water supplies are changing in upstream reservoirs. Climate change, increased environmental regulations and population increases will continue to put more demand on our water supply. As the state looks to the future to plan for the BDCP, it should look to Californians north of the Delta to help answer these questions.
