On the banks of the San Joaquin River in the Delta, about 100 people gathered this morning to protest the construction of the Delta Water Tunnels.
Democratic Congressman Jerry McNerney of Stockton shouted his opposition to the $14 billion "Water Fix" Tunnels Plan that would pump Delta water south.
"Governor Brown listen to the folks in the Delta, we have a voice, we're going to stop your plan."
The Delta is home to 500,000 acres of farmland, and protestors say if the tunnels are built the Delta would become a salt water swamp.
Restore the Delta Director Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla says the 14 years it would take to build the tunnels would ruin Delta farmers.
"Farming families cannot survive being left for 14 years with homes with no water service, no access to their property, and no farming income."
The plan calls for two tunnels 40 feet in diameter and 30 miles long to ship water south.
