I want to be absolutely clear that whatever it takes, we cannot allow the twin tunnels to ever be built. Sized for a capacity of 15,000 cubic feet per second, they are capable of taking all the water that flows down the Sacramento River for half of every year. The tunnels are the ultimate vampire capable of sucking the Delta dry.
We must stop the tunnels, but that is not enough. We must conserve water on farms and in cities. We must replenish our aquifers and build new off-stream reservoirs like Sites north of Sacramento and Los Vaqueros near Brentwood.
