Opponents of Peripheral Canal Call for Independent Cost Analysis

Opponents of a proposed peripheral canal to siphon water from the Sacramento River and out of the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta held an informational picket at the Los Angeles headquarters to the Metropolitan Water District. The group of environmental advocates are urging the state legislature to pass an independent cost-benefit analysis ahead of adoption of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan. Pacifica's Dan Fritz reports.
