No Surprise. Metropolitan Water District votes to invest in CaWaterFix, Delta Tunnels. It’s been sold as a more reliable much needed upgrade to infrastructure. Remember, no environmental restrictions currently happening will change because tunnels are built. Also remember, unless something changes, on “wet” years, we know there is not enough storage north or south of the Delta. MWD voting to support is not a surprise but what might be a surprise, is that Ag will end up paying for a large portion of this project. They will make Ag thirsty.
At a time we are learning High Speed Rail is broke, our state leaders are willing to start up another multi-billion dollar project.
For those thinking about growing marijuana, money trees may be a better option. We are going to need them.
