A Short Delay Before Another Battle
- The unions and businesses that own the legislature have had to retreat from their plan to rape the Sacramento Delta and suck down the billions in tax money the construction project would generate.
Plans for two huge water diversion tunnels in the Delta are being delayed, state officials announced Wednesday, because the plans need more work.
Nancy Vogel, spokeswoman for the California Department of Water Resources, said the delay in the $25 billion Bay Delta Conservation Plan was triggered by public comments submitted on the draft environmental impact report. The comments revealed that certain areas of the plan need additional study, although she could not yet say specifically what areas reports the Sacramento Bee.
“We’re going through it and we’re going to revise and send it back out for public review,” Vogel said. “We continue to look for ways to reduce the impacts to Delta residents and landowners, and we’ll have a lot more information in six to eight weeks.”

Officials said the revised document will be re-released for public comment “in early 2015.” They originally intended to approve the current plan near the start of the new year. Together with more time for public comment on the revised document, the delay will amount to several months.
Translation - The public was screaming their lungs out at the rape of the Delta. So let's going into hiding and hope the peasants go away.
The Bay Delta Conservation Plan has been in the works for more than seven years. It focuses on the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, where water is diverted to serve 25 million Californians and 3 million acres of farmland. The plan aims to stabilize water diversions and repair ecological health in the estuary, the largest on the West Coast of the Americas.
The most controversial element of the plan is a massive pair of tunnels, 40 feet in diameter and 30 miles long, that would divert a portion of the Sacramento River’s flow at three intakes proposed near Courtland. Read More
