Sacramento, CA- Restore the Delta (RTD), opponents of Gov. Brown's rush to build Peripheral Tunnels that would drain the Delta and doom salmon and other Pacific fisheries, today released a video shot by a Courtland resident who attended the administrative office hours the Brown Administration held at the Courtland Library on August 27th. The "office hours" were advertised as an opportunity to get answers to Delta landowners' concerns. Restore the Delta encouraged our supporters to attend and to ask questions of the Brown Administration, such as:
•Will construction cross or interfere with agricultural delivery canals and drainage ditches on my farm?
• How long will my farm be without water?
• Which months will my farm be without water?
"The video demonstrates an appalling lack of information, as the Administration did not have answers to simple questions, such as, 'where will the water go?'" said RTD Executive Director Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla. "Would this video reassure you if you were facing devastating negative impacts of Gov. Brown's peripheral tunnels on Delta farms, businesses and homes?"
