SACRAMENTO (KCBS)— Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho understands the Southland has water needs. But she also understands that Gov. Jerry Brown has publicly stated support for a massive twin-tunnel system that would deliver that water from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
County supervisors are now focusing on the governor’s push to transport the water to Southern California saying they want what’s fair for all Californians.
Brown’s nearly $24 billion tunnel system would divert water from farmland and cities, but opponents argue it would harm an already fragile ecosystem.
