Alarmed that a proposed canal to funnel water around the Delta to Southern California is gaining momentum, a Northern California lawmaker wants to ensure the Legislature has the final say.

A bill by Assemblywoman Alyson Huber, D-Lodi, would prohibit the construction of a canal, tunnel or any other project that would send Delta water south to cities and farms unless state lawmakers authorize it.

    If towns like Lodi keep dumping their contaminants, pesticides, herbicides, sulfur, ecoli, contaminated wine "effluent", contaminated cannery washdown water, hydro plant cooling water, etc. into the underground streams and visible waterway systems into the Delta, Lodi will need its own desalination plant for drinking water.

    I think maybe the residents who will be affected - US - should have a vote on whether this pipeline is built or not; regardless of who's paying for it.One more time....Why don't those down south build themselves desalination plants? There's plenty of ocean water. In this way, the entire state can have fresh water.
