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.
