Players from all sorts of interest groups will participate in a public forum about the proposed peripheral canal on March 3, a Saturday, at Stockton Civic Auditorium.
Called “A Primer on Water and the Delta,” the forum will cover how the canal would affect residential, business and agricultural operations in the Delta.
Presentations will be made by Jerry Meral, deputy secretary for the California Natural Resources Agency; James Peltier of the Westlands Water District in the southern San Joaquin Valley; Stockton Mayor Ann Johnston; water attorney John Herrick; Jeff Michael, director of University of the Pacific’s Business Forecasting Center; and Barbara Barrigan-Parilla, executive director of Restore the Delta.
Questions will be taken after each presentation.
The forum will be held from 8:30 a.m. to noon at the auditorium, 525 N. Center St.
