In a matter of years, Stockton will join the overwhelming majority in California by drawing a portion of its drinking water from the Delta. A groundbreaking for the Delta Water Supply Project, a $217 million venture and the largest public works project in city history, was held on Thursday on Lower Sacramento Road between Armstrong and Eight Mile roads.

More than 100 people crowded into a tent to protect them from the wind while 16 engraved shovels stood in the dirt for the groundbreaking that took place at the site of the future water treatment plant.

    Just a huge power land grab by the aggressive CC of Stockton. The project is enviable, but it's location is suspect? Why so far west of the Delta? So, the old zip code for this area was 95242, what is it now? The Lodi CC needs to be more proactive on matters like these in stead of reacting to something six months after the fact. What happened to pinnacle projects like the Lodi-Delta Campus, Replacing our Sewer Lines, Rebuilding the Grape Bowl... I guess that list of GOAL PRIORITIES would be helpful huh?

    From the article: "Stockton officials said they were adamant about keeping the money in the community. The jobs for design and construction were given to local contractors and 50 percent of all laborers on the project must live in Stockton."Please take note, Lodi CC next time you want to hire a high priced "consultant" from a zillion miles away.
