Experts to Analyze Costs of Peripheral Tunnels:
Who will benefit? Who will pay? What will it cost?
Whom would the Peripheral Tunnels benefit? What are the true costs of the Peripheral Tunnels? Who would pay? Is there a more cost-effective solution?
Restore the Delta announced today that it would present a panel of experts to brief interested media on the cost and financial burden of the proposed Bay-Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP), including Peripheral Tunnels, on Tuesday, May 28, as the Brown Administration releases its financial impacts.
The Brown Administration will release its financing plan on or around May 28.
“The BDCP contemplates the largest public works project in our history,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta. “The State refuses to conduct a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis, in violation of its own policies.”
