Spotlight on Conservation

Following numerous violations of the Brown Act that guarantees the public’s right to attend and participate in meetings of local legislative bodies, the Metropolitan Water District (MWD) of Southern California Board of Directors was forced on July 10 to retake their April vote to finance $10.8 billion of the $17 billion Delta Tunnels project.  The vote was 59.5 percent yes and 39.17 percent no. The yes vote was no surprise, since the Board was under intense pressure from Governor Jerry Brown and corporate agribusiness interests on the west side of the San Joaquin Valley  to finance the majority of the ...

In a victory for Delta Tunnels opponents urging the Brown administration to oppose Congressman Ken Calvert’s rider banning judicial review of the tunnels and other water projects, California Natural Resources Secretary Laird on July 17 sent a letter to members on the Senate and House committees on appropriations opposing the language. “Any proposal to exempt water projects from judicial review would violate due process and undermine public confidence,” Laird wrote. This is the first official statement on the Calvert rider by any member of the Brown administration. Nonetheless, the Brown administration remains firmly committed to the construction of the Delta Tunnels/California Water Fix, considered by ...

On January 4, 2018, California Governor Jerry Brown joined Oregon Governor Kate Brown and Washington Governor Jay Inslee in condemning President Donald Trump's plan to expand oil and gas drilling in federal waters as “reckless” and “short-sighted.” Ironically, as the three Governors condemned Trump’s offshore drilling proposal it turns out that California regulators under Jerry Brown have overseen a massive expansion of new offshore drilling in state waters in recent years — while a new map website, www.BrownvTrumpOilMap.com, reveals that Governor Jerry Brown controls four times as many offshore wells in state waters than Trump controls in federal waters. In a statement, the three governors said, “This political ...

The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) on June 12 posted online a new document that details the environmental impact of proposed design changes purporting to minimize impacts felt by Delta communities and the ecosystem if Governor Jerry Brown’s Delta Tunnels project is built. The project consists of two giant 35 mile long underground tunnels that would divert Sacramento River away from the San Francisco Bay Delta directly to South Delta state and federal pumping facilities in the South Delta. The construction of the tunnels would facilitate the export of massive quantities of Northern California water to Southern California water agencies and San Joaquin Valley agribusiness interests ...
