The final word on DWR’s demand to access Delta private property

As reported last week, Delta landowners won a significant legal victory – which has now been finalized.  A San Joaquin County judge filed an “Opinion and Final Order Denying Petition for Entry for Geological Activities” on April 8, 2011.  This ruling denies DWR the right to enter many Delta properties to conduct invasive “Geological Activities,” including drilling.

DWR insisted that the Geological Activities are necessary to gather data for a proposed peripheral canal or tunnel to divert fresh water that normally flows through the Delta, sending it directly to pumps near Tracy for conveyance to Central and Southern California.
