to Tell Delta Protection Commission:
Gov. Brown’s Tunnels Would
“Force Byron residents to Move,”
“Permanently Degrade Groundwater”
Restore the Delta (RTD), opponents of Gov. Brown’s plan to build Peripheral Tunnels that would drain the Delta and doom salmon and other Pacific fisheries, announced today that it will detail permanent, significant and unavoidable negative impacts on the Delta region at a Delta Protection Commission meeting Thursday evening in Stockton.
“The Brown Administration admits the tunnels would have ’52 Significant and Unavoidable Adverse Impacts’ on the Delta region, including permanently degraded groundwater quality, long-term reduction of navigation opportunities, and exposure to air quality in Byron bad enough to require people to move in order to avoid an increased cancer risk,” said RTD Water Policy Consultant Jane Wagner-Tyack.
