Media Advisory | Restore the Delta will present a panel of experts to brief interested media on the cost and financial burden of the proposed Bay-Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP), including Peripheral Tunnels, at 1:30pm on Tuesday, May 28, as the Brown Administration releases its financial impacts.
The panel will look at key questions such as : Whom would the Peripheral Tunnels benefit? What are the true costs of the Peripheral Tunnels? Who would pay? Is there a more cost-effective solution?
“The BDCP contemplates the largest public works project in our history,” said Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, executive director of Restore the Delta. “The State refuses to conduct a comprehensive cost-benefit analysis, in violation of its own policies.”
The panel of experts includes Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta; Dr. Jeffrey Michael, Business Forecasting Center at the University of the Pacific; Adam Scow, Food & Water Watch; and Carolee Krieger, California Water Impact Network.
The panel can be listened to by calling 1-404-920-6442 Code: 593244#
