STOCKTON, CA – Restore the Delta (RTD), opponents of Gov. Brown’s plan to build Peripheral Tunnels that would drain the Delta and doom salmon and other Pacific fisheries, will host a “Public Comment Party” on Tuesday, May 13, to “complete more than one hundred citizens’ comments against the proposed tunnels,” said RTD Executive Director Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla. Citizens have just a few weeks left to respond to the Brown Administration’s 40,000 page proposed BDCP Plan.
“It’s nearly impossible for a concerned citizen to review and digest this avalanche of information, and misinformation, alone,” said Barrigan-Parrilla. “We call all concerned citizens to write comment letters, and be counted.
RTD will provide examples and instructions on how to identify impacts on your property, business and communities. Walk out with your comment letter!”
RTD will provide a list of areas of concern affecting all area residents, and will have experts in attendance to explain potential negative impacts. Here is a sample
BDCP response letter that residents can personalize and submit.
