Thank you for your article about the Bay Delta Plan.
My name is Christine Huttinger and I am a property owner in the Walnut Grove area of the Delta. On Oct. 3, I was served with documents from the State of California that state that if I do not agree to a temporary entry permit for testing on my property, I will be included in a petition to the state that requests that I be court-ordered to grant the State of California access to my property.
The purpose of the testing is to support the construction of a structure that would transport water from and through the Delta to Southern California.
It seems likely that the Bay Delta Conservation Plan has been "an exclusionary closed-door operation," as my communication with the State of California regarding my property has not been an open and honest discourse.
It is my perspective that what is not being said about the Bay Delta Plan and the proposed water conveyance system is of more significance than what is being said.
I appreciate all efforts that encourage protection of the Delta and that advocate for respectful interactions between the parties involved. Thank you for your effort to include the general public in this process.
