OPINION: Delta Tunnel ‘WaterFix’ Vote Now? Santa Clara Valley Should Say No Way

Gov. Jerry Brown is trying to force California water agencies, including the Santa Clara Valley Water District, to vote in the next month on whether they will pay for building his $17 billion “WaterFix” Delta tunnels project. It is an arbitrary, outrageous and irresponsible deadline. There is no formal agreement on how the project will be financed, how it will be governed or how the water will be allocated: none of the information a responsible water board needs to know for an informed decision.
