In Case You Missed It: Our Letter to DWR and CA Natural Resources – “Cessation of Delta Conveyance Project Actions During Novel Coronavirus Pandemic”

Today, Restore the Delta and Sierra Club California sent a letter to Karla Nemeth, Director of California Department of Water Resources, and Wade Crowfoot, Secretary of California Natural Resources Agency, to demand—respectfully—that the California Natural Resources Agency and DWR suspend and cease all Delta Conveyance Project (DCP) activity that entails actions by state and federal agencies on the DCP during the duration of the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic emergency. There is plenty of other work that may proceed in the absence of such actions from other agencies. But there is no justification for DCP to seek and receive benefit of other agencies’ actions for which public participation is critical, and during the pandemic, scarce and distracted.
