Governor Jerry Brown is going to appear at the California State Capitol on Wednesday to announce his plan to build the Peripheral Canal.
In a nutshell, if built, the canal will be a death sentence for one of the greatest estuaries on the West Coast. This colossal mistake would exterminate our salmon, steelhead, sturgeon and shad runs, while destroying Delta farms and costing tax payers tens of billions of dollars…all to benefit a small number of growers well to the south.
Worse, the science behind the project was found to be extremely faulty and biased…but the proponents came back with an absolutely asinine proposal to build it now and then figure out how to manage it later.
This will absolutely kill the fisheries of the Delta, Sacramento River, Feather River, American River, San Joaquin River, Mokelumne River, Yuba River and many more.
You can join the fight by showing up Weds., July 25 at the West Steps of the Capitol in Sacramento by noon to join a rally to save the Delta. For more information, visit Restore the Delta
