Stop The Tunnels: One of the Most Important Actions for 2017
We know that we’ve asked a lot of you, our members, in terms of attending government meetings to speak out against the tunnels. However, the Delta Stewardship Council meeting on April 28, 2017 in Sacramento is one of the most important meetings for you to attend in 2017. We hope that you can join us.
Mark your calendars:
The meeting will begin on April 28 at 9 a.m. at the Park Tower Plaza, 980 Ninth Street, Sacramento, 2nd Floor Conference Room.
Why is this action so important?
We need you to voice your opposition to the Delta Plan amendments to the Council because in this document: the Delta tunnels come first for promoting “improved” conveyance over consideration of other options. The Delta Plan amendments fail to consider other options for improving conveyance, like fixing existing fish screens, and continue the Council’s pattern and practice of ignoring the portion of the Delta Reform Act that calls for reduced reliance on the Delta, as well as protecting, restoring, and enhancing the Delta ecosystem. Read our press release and letter to the Delta Stewardship Council on the Delta Plan amendments.
In addition, Metropolitan Water District of Southern California has made it clear to their own board that they need this amendment to become part of the Delta Plan so that they can move forward with evaluating and approving their financial contribution toward the Delta tunnels. Therefore, your attendance is more important than ever.
