The San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday condemned Gov. Jerry Brown’s Bay Delta Conservation Plan as a financial and environmental boondoggle.

The supervisors approved a resolution blasting the project, better known as the Delta twin tunnels, by a 4-0 vote. They also approved the formal submission of public comments, nearly all of them blistering the proposal.

    After seeing the size of 2, 30` diameter tunnels and how much water can pass through them, if and when they get built, I have no doubt the Delta will be gone and there will be sharks and other salt water fish at the port of sac. perhaps even a Killer Whale. Salt water intrusion is slowly inching up the Sacramento river due to the lack of fresh water. Desalination is one way to keep both Northern and SoCal happy, with the money needed to build those tunnels, desal plants could be built. Perhaps Moonbeam should see his doctor, at his age he might not be playing with a full deck.

    This is a blatant upstream water grab of the worst kind. The Peripheral Tunnels
    may as well be called "Sacramento River to SoCal" as far as NorCal and the Delta are concerned. I'm all for shipping as much water south as possible without significant environmental impact -AFTER- it flows thru the Delta to the pumps at Tracy.
    It needs to FLOW THRU the Delta to cleanse it and dilute all of the residue from all of the farming and industry we have up here. If that flow is disrupted, the Delta will become stagnant and die. Even a fool can figure that out. These Peripheral Tunnels are all about money and personal greed...and the politics they control. Just say NO!

    Article after article, organization after organization, farmer, environmentalist, private property owners, local government officials... the list of those against the twin tunnels is endless. How can the governor seriously still be considering this plan?
