California water officials released on Thursday the first part of a $23 billion plan to restore and protect the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta ecosystem and guarantee a stable water supply for millions of Californians.

The Bay Delta Conservation Plan, known as the BDCP, is a federal and state initiative financed by California's water contractors, which includes recommendations for a twin tunnel project in the Delta to carry water to vast farmlands and thirsty cities.

    Was there ever any doubt that their "decision" would be any different? They aren't planning on sharing this valuable commodity, but selling it at a tremendous to southern California entities who will in turn sell it for many times the price they purchased it for and we, the taxpayers, will see more greed, called water, enrichen those who need it the least. The time has come for them to spend their own time and money by constructing desalination facilities, like San Luis Obispo has.
