Some critics are once again blasting the proposed multi-billion dollar peripheral canal project.

Members of the group Restore the Delta say the canal around the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta is too costly and will only support big agribusiness in the San Joaquin Valley.

Another group called Food and Water Watch says the bay delta conservation plan “is not necessary and would result in massive ratepayer hikes.”

The estimated cost of the project is upwards of $50 billion but backers say it’s a small price to pay for a quality water supply for much of the state.
