Holiday ACTION ALERT to Save the Delta!
CALL Governor Newsom today and all through the holiday break!
It is clear from recent media stories that Westlands Water District is aggressively pushing the Newsom Administration to not litigate against the Bernhardt/Trump Water Plan that will significantly increase pumping from the San Francisco Bay-Delta. Westlands is threatening to walk away from the “voluntary agreements” to set flow standards for the Delta.
The problem is the voluntary agreements, from what we understand, will be worse than the Bay-Delta plan approved at the end of 2018. Little water is being allocated for Delta flows during the summer and fall months when Delta waterways are in peril from proliferating Harmful Algal Blooms.
Not surprisingly, Senator Dianne Feinstein, as is customary, is working to help Westlands by putting her own pressure on Governor Newsom. It is sort of amazing to see Senator Feinstein collaborating with Secretary Bernhardt of the Department of Interior, with DOI investigations pending, to increase pumping from the estuary.
It's time to ask the Governor, who is he going to side with? Big corporate farms from Westlands, all tied to corruption in the Department of Interior and the Trump Administration? Or with the people he promised to protect with his new and improved social contract for California – disadvantaged communities, and everyday middleclass people who are the backbone of the state?
And remember, every time the Federal or State government guts another water/species protection law, they make it that much easier to fill a big new Delta tunnel with lots of water.
Here is how you can reach Governor Newsom.
As always, be polite and respectful. Represent the Delta well.
