I've lived on the Delta for a number of years now and love it. What's going to happen when you take that much water away from the Delta? Let me tell you: That Delta water will be replaced by salt water, and the only fishing will be for sharks.

What are these politicians thinking? I know they don't care. They don't live here. And the cost — $14 billion — nuts.

It's like having a train that goes nowhere at 200 miles an hour and at a cost that is nuts. With all this money, we could put people to work right away just cleaning up the Delta and the state.

And Southern California can make their own water. They have the ocean and the sun. If we can distill alcohol, we can distill salt water.

Don't fool with the Delta.

    It's been known for years that salt water is slowly making it's way farther inland. Along with what is described in the article, there is also the fact that the water pressure flowing out ot sea has been lessoned by all the dams in the moutains. Especially during years of drought when water is held back in the reservoirs much more. I'm not opposed to these dams. There was plenty of research going on long before they built many of these dams showing the probability of salt water making it's way inland.
