May 28: Experts to Analyze Costs of Peripheral Tunnels:

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#
