Stockton, CA – Today, Governor Newsom released a significant new water plan “California’s Water Supply Strategy: Adapting to a Hotter, Drier Future.”

Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director, Restore the Delta, said:

“The California water supply strategy document released by the Newsom administration today is a step in the right direction. 

“We are happy to see that many issues we have expressed concern about are being addressed. The challenge in California continues to be the execution of the plans. How do we hold ourselves accountable? How do we actually meet the standards that we set? 

“We will continue to monitor the planning and implementation of the described projects in this high-level document. We also maintain the voluntary agreements and the Delta tunnel are actually IN THE WAY of implementing many of the projects outlined in the Governor’s new plan.”
