Growing Support for Analysis of Bay-Delta Conceptual Alternative

Last month, a coalition of environmental groups, urban water agencies, business groups and local elected officials in California released a new, portfolio based conceptual alternative for the Bay Delta and asked state and federal agencies to analyze this alternative in the Bay Delta Conservation Plan EIS/EIR.  We believe that this alternative promises better environmental results and greater and more secure water supplies at less cost than the state’s current preferred BDCP project.  Since the alternative was released, additional business groups, newspapers, and other interests have expressed support for meaningful analysis of this alternative. Below are links to the letters, editorials, newspaper stories, and other information regarding this alternative.
