It May Be Back To The Drawing Board For Jerry Brown’s Delta Tunnels

Despite a personal push from Gov. Jerry Brown, the Santa Clara Valley Water District’s Board of Directors gave a resounding “no” the other day to helping to pay for his plan for two 35-mile tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to help deliver water to the Central Valley and Southern California. The district was being asked to kick in $620 million to the project. The seven-member board’s vote against the idea was unanimous.
