The idea of Northern California seceding from Southern California over water resources has been floating around for decades, and I suspect this idea may resurface after this latest plan to divert the state's most precious resource from north to south. Southern Califonria has caused most of its own problem by overbuilding residential subdivisions with little thought of how to supply water to all those homes. Whenever I travel to southern California, I'm appalled that no one gives any thought to water conservation as they continue to irrigate freeway landscaping, golf courses and their lush green front lawns. In Northern California, we are far more conscious of conserving our most precious resource, so this latest water-grabbing plan galls those who are opposed to diverting more of this precious resource to the south. There seems to be little or no thought to what these two 33 ft wide tunnels would do to the Sacramento Delta or to the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, other than to reduce them to a mere trickle. A better solution to southern California's water shortage would be desalination plants. We cannot allow this environmental disaster to go forward. Have we learned nothing from the disasters at Mono Lake and the Hetch Hetchy Valley?
