3. DELTA VISION TASK FORCE VO/SOT
The governor's "Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force" will meet in West Sacramento to discuss additional recommendations and input for the report it is expected to prepare by January 1, 2008. The task force was convened by the governor to make recommendations for rehabilitation and use of water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta which supplies agricultural and drinking water to about 25 million Californians. Recent court rulings reducing the amount of water that will be allowed to be pumped from the delta to points south and west have created more urgency to the task force's mission.
