City Of Sacramento Weighs In On Bay-Delta Conservation Plan


The City of Sacramento has submitted its comments on the proposed Bay-Delta Conservation Plan.

In a news release, City Manager John Shirey says the plan doesn't "reflect a statewide solution." The multibillion-dollar plan calls for construction of tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to export water from the Sacramento River to the Central Valley, southern California and the San Francisco Bay area.

Governor Jerry Brown supports the proposal.

Shirey says the city is willing to work with the state on a long-term plan "that works for all parts of the state."

Critics say the tunnels would ruin farming and communities, as well as the Delta’s way of life.
