The Delta Stewardship Council wants “to hear from a variety of Californians about how best to communicate with them.” They’ve got a survey.
Question #4 asks “In your opinion, what are the three most important water issues to address?”
There are plenty of boxes to choose from, but none for “conservation,” “regional water self-sufficiency,” or “public safety.” (There is a box for “flood management,” but managing floods isn’t exactly the same thing as protecting people.)
There is a box for “Other.”
The DSC would probably argue that conservation, regional water self-sufficiency, and public safety aren’t part of their job description.
We would argue that no governance body that ignores these issue can be a good steward of the Delta.
