California Water Diversion Debate Continues

The debate over how to divert water around Central California's San Joaquin Valley for delivery to Southern California has been rekindled. A task force is meeting to find a way to address this and many of the state's other long-standing water issues.

"After nearly a year of study, the Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force will hold its last two meetings beginning Thursday in Sacramento in hopes of reaching consensus on how to resolve the long-standing conflict in the delta: protecting a delicate ecosystem while providing water to millions of urban users across the state, including parts of the Bay Area."

"Although the panel, appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, will offer a long list of recommendations, water and resource experts said Wednesday they expected the panel to vote by Friday to build a new system to deliver delta water to urban users that is physically separate from the delta itself - a system like the peripheral canal that California voters rejected 25 years ago."
