California Water Plan Ripped

CALIFORNIA'S DRAFT BAY DELTA CONSERVATION PLAN INCOMPLETE;

NEEDS BETTER INTEGRATION TO BE MORE SCIENTIFICALLY CREDIBLE

  

WASHINGTON — A draft plan to conserve habitat for endangered and threatened fishes in the California Bay-Delta while continuing to divert water for agricultural and personal use in central and southern California has critical missing components, including clearly defined goals and a scientific analysis of the proposed project's potential impacts on delta species, says a new report from the National Research Council.  In addition, the scientific information in the plan is fragmented and presented in an unconnected manner, making its meaning difficult to understand.
