In case you missed it…
Restore the Delta was the only Bay-Delta voice on the 1-hour "KQED Forum." Special thanks to concerned supporters and Californians who called in to ask tough questions!
KQED Forum: Public hearings began Tuesday on Governor Jerry Brown’s $14.9 billion proposal to construct two 35 -mile tunnels below the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. Supporters say the project, officially named “California WaterFix,” will stabilize water delivery across the state. But opponents argue the tunnels are too costly and will harm the estuary. We’ll get an update on the controversial project.
