The California Department of Water Resources (DWR) has submitted a petition to the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) to change water rights for implementation of the Delta Conveyance Project, also known as the Delta tunnel, despite currently being under investigation by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for discriminatory mismanagement of the Delta.
Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Executive Director of Restore the Delta expressed disappointment with this decision, "DWR, speaking on behalf of the State Water Resources Control Board's actions while our petition for relief is under investigation with the US EPA, reveals the lack of proper regulatory distance between the Newsom Administration's pro-tunnel agenda and State regulators tasked with protecting and considering impacts on all water users and related parties throughout the state."
