The Los Angeles Metropolitan Water District is proposing to build a peripheral canal around the Delta in order to divert more water to Los Angeles.  This may have disastrous consequences for Discovery Bay.  Right now, the L.A./Metropolitan Water District and other water contractors are running the show for this canal project.  As a first step in responding to this canal, we need your help to get the Water Contractors out of the driver’s seat.    (Metropolitan Water District plan shown here)

You can just cut and paste the below language and/or add your own thoughts:

I am a resident of Discovery Bay and I object to putting the Water Contractors in charge of deciding the future of the Delta. The Water Contractors should have no say in the environmental review of any proposed peripheral canal. And when do we get our say? We live on the Delta and stand to be most impacted by any canal. You should appoint a representative to the steering committee for the canal to represent the interests of people who live in the Delta, earn their living from Delta related business, and use the Delta for navigation.

  1. I am a Delta Community resident and I object to putting the Water Contractors in charge of deciding the future of the Delta. The Water Contractors should have no say in the environmental review of any proposed peripheral canal. And when do we get our say? We live on the Delta and stand to be most impacted by any canal. You should appoint a representative to the steering committee for the canal to represent the interests of people who live in the Delta, earn their living from Delta related business, and use the Delta for navigation.

  2. This canal will be a disaster for the Delta area and the local economies which are supported by the Delta. Furthermore it will have disastrous consequences for the salmon runs and for the fishing industry which relies on those salmon runs. If we decide to send more water south, we are deciding to not have fish in our rivers. History has shown that if you take away the habitat, the fish go away. This canal will be an environmental disaster!

  3. This is rediculous! How is southern California (who I might add that gets fed their water from a very prominent source, the Colorado river) having any say in what to do with our water in northern California? They need to focus their efforts else where
