A viewing of the video "Over Troubled Waters" and discussion led by Rod Kirk.
We are at the crossroads of something very good happening or something very bad happening. There is a pending plan to embark upon the construction of a set of tunnels to convey water through the Delta to Southern California. Right now various county agencies throughout California are busy analyzing and gathering input and data in order to make a decision to get on board and if this is going to help with our water issues or cause even more problems. The Santa Clara Valley Water District (SCVWD) has been holding meetings in which supporters and non supporters of the plan have provided input. There are two ideas being talked about. One is called the California Water Fix and the other is referred to as California Eco Restore. They address different facits of the overall plan. SCVWD will later this year be making a decision whether to sign up for the plan and getting water from it or to not sign up and put efforts into other water related efforts to deal with our water problems. This a critical time. Every Bay Area water user needs to become educated on the details of the plan, the various reports and information being circulated, and listen to the speakers who are providing input. One of the key opponents to the plan is the Restore The Delta organization.
In this special EGG meeting, we will watch a video called "Over Troubled Waters" which was produced by the Restore The Delta organization. We will then spend some time discussing what we have learned. Come join us for an informative session.
Several informative links are provided below to bring you up to speed on the issues we are faced with.
