    by Tim Stroshane, Policy Analyst, Restore the Delta After the Wednesday evening “climate change” edition webinar for the Delta Conveyance Project presented by the California Department of Water Resources, I found myself remembering the Soviet cosmonaut Vladimir Komarov.

    For decades, Anti-California sentiment has been part of American media news coverage, which sadly too often measures state success only in terms of corporate success.

  • ACTION ALERT UPDATE: No Delta Tunnel in the CEQA E…
    As we stated in our Sunday newsletter, the Newsom Administration is trying to move forward with disingenuous Delta watershed restoration bills that replace water with habitat (instead of doing both).  This is part of their full court press to create “voluntary agreements” to fill the Delta tunnel.  We need you to call your legislator and Governor Newsom’s office ...

  • Drinking Water Week (Part 2): The Undead Policies …
    by Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla and Tim Stroshane These are the undead ideas of California “water policy” today: A Delta Conveyance Project. New Dams and Reservoir Storage. Voluntary Agreements. Such ideas are put forward by the water industry—and few others—as “solutions” to California’s seeming chronic shortage of water.  These ideas have been defeated time and time again (statewide elections, ...

    By Tim Stroshane It is Drinking Water Week, according to the American Water Works Association and the Delta Stewardship Council. When not paying attention to the ever-present and necessary news about the novel coronavirus pandemic spreading COVID-19 disease, in the middle of March we began hearing about California re-entering drought.
