Delta Businesses Worried About Future

Monday, September 13, 2010
The forums will address the need to keep Delta businesses afloat if the state decides to add a new water diversion system.  
"The folks of the Delta feel very ignored and disregarded, that they're not a part of the equation."
Contra Costa County Supervisor Mary Piepho is a member of the state Delta Protection Commission…which is holding the meetings. She says people who live and work in the Delta are worried that adding canals or tunnels will hurt marinas, restaurants, hotels and other businesses.
Piepho says the commission's role is to make sure that doesn't happen.
"Policy makers, when they're looking at the Delta and considering what to do with water transfers to feed a very thirsty state, that we don't devastate the local economy."
The first community forum is tonight in Courtland. Other meetings will be held throughout September in Discovery Bay, Rio Vista, North Stockton and Antioch.
