Josh Harder to introduce legislation to prevent Delta Tunnel from gaining ground
The battle for California’s water supply is scheduled to take center stage at the nation’s capitol on Monday, as Central Valley Congressman Josh Harder is set to take the strongest step yet to stop the state’s proposed giant water tunnel from gaining ground. … The Delta, fed by the Sacramento and San Joaquin Rivers, collects and moves water to more than 27 million Californians and is vital to 750,000 acres of farmland. A scaled-down single tunnel, which is supported by Gov. Gavin Newsom, would bypass the central Delta and funnel water south, which according to state officials, would modernize aging water infrastructure.
