Delta Disaster Speculation

The California Resources Agency is nearing completion of an environmental analysis for the Bay Delta Conservation Plan. The BDCP is intended to achieve the two goals of restoring the Bay Delta ecosystem, and providing a more reliable water supply for some Central Valley farms and Southern California water users. The eighteen thousand page document will be released in March and April for public review. The plan is touted by proponents as critical for the future growth of arid Central and Southern California. Northern Californians generally see it as threat to their economy and ecology. Vic Bedoian reports from Fresno.
