I specialize in California Delta videos and information on the water war issues with Southern California water contractors trying to build a 30 mile long twin tunnel conveyance, 150 feet deep, through the middle of the California Delta to suck more water southward. Ground Zero is in the Clarksburg, Courtland, Hood, Locke, and Walnut Grove Sacramento River quaint, historic towns. It will devastate these communities' tourists and farming interests and won't produce any more water than the water contractors' present annual allocations. Major impacts to boating, recreation and farming throughout the entire Delta will be felt if this insane project of Governor Jerry "Moonbeam" Brown is allowed to be built. Mega-rich puppeteers behind the scenes will, of course, make millions of dollars on this up to $67 billion+ project that could further privatize water in California and raise the rates for all citizens relying on Delta water. I’m chronicling this history through video and printed articles on Central Valley Business Times digital news service in Stockton.
