Film looks at proposed delta pipelines

By From page A5 | September 24, 2013

“Over Troubled Waters — The Fate of California is in Your Hands,” a movie about the peripheral tunnel pipeline proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown, will be screened at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 2, in the Blanchard Room at the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

The movie investigates the proposed twin pipes that may be buried near the Sacramento River starting north of Hood and ending south of Tracy. The tunnels would capture fresh water and transport it to water users in the southern San Joaquin Valley and Southern California.

“This massive diversion would deprive the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, the largest estuary on the Pacific Coast of the Americas, of the fresh water that sustains it and balances the salinity of the San Francisco Bay tidewaters,” a news release said.

The film features delta residents, farmers, politicians and scientists speaking out about the proposal and its impacts. For more information, call Frances Burke at 530-848-2696 or Roselinda Martinez at 530-662-7893.
