STAND UP, CA: We need your help to stop the tunnels at the MWD Vote on TUESDAY!

After failing to secure adequate funding for the twin tunnels (CA WaterFix) from Westlands Water District, Santa Clara Valley Water District, and Kern County Water Agency last fall, the leading proponent of the CA WaterFix, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California (MWD), is preparing their board for a vote on Tuesday to approve funding for the phased-in version of the massive conveyance project.

UPDATE: The Delta Stewardship Council is now taking written public comments. See below!   Friends of the Bay-Delta,   Remember the Delta Stewardship Council's pro-Tunnels Delta Plan amendments? For years, Restore the Delta, environmental groups, and Delta residents have requested the Delta Stewardship Council to follow Delta Reform Act mandates to reduce reliance on the Delta, invest in existing levees, protect fish, and stop the damage from operation of the state and federal water pumps near Tracy. Instead, the DSC chose to promote ”dual conveyance” systems in order to aid the Brown Administration and special interest water districts attempting to fast-track the Delta Tunnels (also known as “California WaterFix”) proposal.   It is critical that we participate in all public processes on [...]
