Restore the Delta was started 11 years ago on the University of Pacific campus. It has attracted 50,000 followers that are made up of environmentalists, fishermen, Delta residents and business owners who oppose Governor Brown's proposed twin tunnels project PLUS a lot of Californians who just think it is a stupid, money wasting project where there are better, less expensive solutions. Many Delta people would be forced out of their homes and businesses, which would drastically change this beautiful estuary—the largest on the West Coast of the Americas. Boaters, fishermen, and others who annually flock to the Delta like homing pigeons would be driven away by all the construction noise, hundreds of commercial muck trucks plying back and forth on the narrow Delta roads and bridges. The state has told the locals it will only be "temporary"—meaning 10 years or more, which will destroy the economy and threaten water supplies to homes and businesses from Stockton to Clarksburg and south as far as Discovery Bay. Many waterways will be blocked to boat traffic and large barges will be the dominant vessels. Imagine going to your favorite anchorage like Mildred Island for a weekend, only to face a construction site with huge lights at night and barges going in and out! Hear what the next steps are in the fight to stop the tunnels from Restore the Delta's executive director, Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla on this video that is the entire meeting in Stockton, June 26, 2017.
