Matsui Repeats False Information
Aug 07, 2012
Rep. Doris Matsui says she understands the need for regional cooperation for large infrastructure projects and then repeats false information from others who want to scare people about the Bay-Delta Conservation Plan. Insinuating that the 9,000 cfs capacity of the proposed project will somehow drain the Sacramento River because its flow is as low as 12,000 cfs at certain times completely ignores operating criteria in the Plan that limits diversions when river flows are low. Anyone who convinced Rep. Matsui that the Sacramento River might disappear into a hole in the ground, leaving the Delta filled with a tidal wave of seawater is not accurately representing the facts outlined in the Plan. Additionally, the BDCP process put forth by Gov. Brown and U.S. Interior Secretary Ken Salazar does in fact include a broad stakeholder group that has representatives from Delta interests involved, as well as the urban and agricultural representatives from other parts of the state that seek a return to water supply reliability for their regions.
