From the Redding Record Searchlight:
“Proponents of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan — the multibillion-dollar effort to both restore the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta and replumb it to pipe Sacramento River water south — frequently claim the project isn’t about taking any new water from the North State, but merely ensuring the existing supplies flow more reliably and predictably.
“Well, maybe. But if they ever get those predictable flows, the next thing folks down south will want is more water. And sometimes they tip their cards.”
