How the Tunnels Would Harm SF Bay Delta
Sacramento, CA- Restore the Delta (RTD), and Food and Water Watch, opponents of Gov. Brown’s rush to build Peripheral Tunnels that would drain the Delta and doom salmon and other Pacific fisheries, will address a forum in San Francisco on Monday, March 10, to outline the damage the governor’s project would do to the San Francisco/San Joaquin Bay delta and estuary, businesses and families. “The governor proposes to sacrifice salmon and other fisheries, sustainable farming and wise water management to mainly benefit the top 1% of corporate agribusiness in the Westlands and Kern County Water districts,” said RTD Executive Director Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla.
