Today on Your Call: How should Bay Delta water be distributed in California?
On today's Your Call we’ll talk about California Governor Jerry Brown’s plan to build twin tunnels under the Bay Delta. They’re designed to carry water to farms and cities further south. Some environmentalists say the plan is dangerous and destructive to the Delta’s fragile ecosystem. Others have proposed compromises like building smaller tunnels. How do you think water should be distributed? Join the conversation and call in with your questions on the next Your Call, with Holly Kernan, and You.
