Colorado River fiasco an apt environmental lesson
Let me get this straight, the WaterFix solution is to address the crumbling Delta levee infrastructure and deliver water to points south for a cost of $650 million to Santa Clara Valley Water District rate-payers. Two questions need to be asked: 1) Why isn’t the emphasis on repairing the levees (instead of controlling water-flow/ levels)? 2) What has Southern California ever done for Northern California?
The Colorado River fiasco should be a lesson on environmental impact. Ignoring the fragility of the Delta is a disaster in the waiting and second only to the disaster known as the Santa Clara Valley Water District Board.
