Help Defeat the WaterFix Twin Tunnels. They are alive again.
by GGSA Staff
The twin tunnel WaterFix project has died at least twice but it has re-emerged once more. The Delta Stewardship Council is about to vote to approve adding the proposed WaterFix conveyance plan into the updated Delta Plan. That will keep the project alive but In doing so, they are completely ignoring their legal mandate to protect the Delta and the fish but that does not seem to matter to them.
We need to strongly oppose this action. If the tunnels are completed, there will be severe damage to the salmon runs and likely extinctions. We have developed a quick and easy system where you can send an email in opposition to that vote. Please help us kill this project once again. To join the campaign click on Water4fish.org. Then click on "Write Letters to Key Individuals" at the top of the page and proceed to your letter opposing the twin tunnels. Or, click here to go directly to the letter campaign page. Thanks for your support and please also sign up your salmon supporter friends.

The Golden Gate Salmon Association is a coalition of salmon advocates that includes commercial and recreational salmon fisherman, businesses, restaurants, a native tribe, environmentalists, elected officials, families and communities that rely on salmon.
GGSA’s mission is to restore California salmon for their economic, recreational, commercial, environmental, cultural and health values.
Currently, California’s salmon industry is valued at $1.4 billion in economic activity annually in a regular season and about half that much in economic activity and jobs again in Oregon. The industry employs tens of thousands of people from Santa Barbara to northern Oregon. This is a huge economic bloc made up of commercial fishermen, recreational fishermen (fresh and salt water), fish processors, marinas, coastal communities, equipment manufacturers, the hotel and food industry, tribes, and the salmon fishing industry at large.
