What is not mentioned in the article are two important facts about the Bay Delta Conservation Plan: 1) it relies heavily upon Federal financing 2) there is a much less expensive alternative, which will provide as much water. It is the "through Delta" alternative which improves delta channels, provides flood protection for water supply and infrastructure, and protects fisheries. The federal agencies tasked with permitting the BayDelta Conservation Plan have slammed the planning process thus far as "biased" toward the tunnel option (Read their 56 pages of comment on the BDCP website). Taxpayers should demand that less expensive water transfer plans should be fully and completed compared. Thanks for the opportunity to comment. Rogene Reynolds, South Delta.
