Re: DWR to Award up to $1 Billion in Contracts for Proposal, Before Completing Permit Process

Fair enough Mark, everybody sees things through different eyes. I agree. I think we all want what's best for the Delta, now and down the road. I just trust that the Restore the Delta people do, too, more that Gov. Brown and the DWR/Waterfix people. I hope that, whoever winds up prevailing, the Delt...

Re: DWR to Award up to $1 Billion in Contracts for Proposal, Before Completing Permit Process

Steve, The history of the Waterfix tunnels shows a consistent disregard for laws and regulations that are already on the books by the DWR and the water districts. As we speak, they are being taken to court for their actions. There is no way I will trust them, based on past performance. We need to sp...

Flipping and pitching are short line techniques, and 30lb fluoro is going to be very durable, so you don't have to retie as often. I would concen...
