Elected officials from the Lodi area are among those trying to convince authors of a plan that may send Delta waters to the southern San Joaquin Valley and Los Angeles Basin to change their minds.

The sticking point is a "memorandum of agreement" to the Bay-Delta Conservation Plan that the U.S. Department of the Interior adopted in September.

    The MOA clearly states that the Bureau of Reclamation, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, National Marine Fisheries Service and the California Department of Water Resources retains the decision-making process of the BDCP. In addition, the habitat conservation plan, central to the BDCP, is ultimately subject to review by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. Individuals and groups who object to the public water agencies being added as permittees to the BDCP fail to acknowledge that it is a common practice when developing a habitat conservation plan to add those who fund it to the MOA.

    Does anyone look forward anymore? Will someone put a cap on how much water can be sent south? They talk about a canal or tunnel without even discussing the amount of water to be sent south! Why would anyone in the north agree to this?
