32 July 6 - 20, 2018 New California WaterFix Environmental Document with ‘Design Changes’ Released T he California Department of Water Resources (DWR) on June 12 posted online a new document that details the environmental impact of proposed design changes purporting to minimize impacts felt by Delta communi- ties and the ecosystem if Governor Jerry Brown’s Delta Tunnels project is built. The project consists of two giant 35-mile-long underground tunnels that would divert Sacramento River away from the San Francisco Bay Delta directly to South Delta state and federal pumping facilities in the South Delta. The construc- tion of the tunnels would facilitate the export of massive quantities of Northern California water to Southern California water agencies and San Joaquin Valley agribusiness interests. The California WaterFix Administra- tive Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) was prepared for DWR and the U.S. Bureau of Reclama- tion, in accordance with the California Environmental Quality 7B4UBFVf&VFƖ77@U( FRWFFVBVf&VFǗ606fW'2fG&B6vW2&W7VFrg&Ч&6VBFW6vFf6F2FBgW'FW ֖֗R7G2bFR&V7B66VFW2BFRVf&VB( FPV6VVBg&Eu"6VB( FVvfW'62bFRG&g@7WVVFT"T2fR&WfW6ǐ&VV&WfWvVB'FRVBvV6W2FPF֖7G&FfR&WfWrG&gBbFR7WRЦVFT"T2&Vr7FVBFF0BWB&VV&WfWvVB"&fVB'FPVBvV6W2f"FWV7VWFrFP&WV&VVG2b4U"U( Eu WVB( F2F֖7G&FfR&WfWrG&g@F7VVB2&VrF7G&'WFVBF&W76Ц&RB6W&FrvV6W2VFW"4UBUB2f&RFR6Ɩf"ЦvFW$fvV'6FRBf"W6R'FP7FFRvFW"&W6W&6W26G&&&B0'BbFRvr6Ɩf&vFW$f6vRBbFfW'6V&w2( Ц66&FrFEu"GW&rFR6֖rF2FRV@vV6W2v&WfWrFRG&gBFFWFW&֖PbFRF7VVBgVf2FR&WV&VVG0b4UBUEu"6BFRWvǒ&6VB( FЦ֗F>( FW6v6vW2v&GV6PFRfvr( ƶW&VVfG>( Ӡ( "6vf6Fǒ&VGV6RvWFB7G0( "66ƖFFRFR&WW6&RGVVFW&%DҒfG&BF֖֗P7G2F7FRW2vFƖfR&VgVvPBV&'w&7VGW&G0( "&VGV6R7G2F6B6V@BFR6ƖgF6W'Bf&V&( "&VGV6RFVF7G2FFRFvbBB&W6FVFVv&&@w26@( "&VGV6RFRV&W"bvW"W0BƖW2&WV&VBv6&fW0W7FWF72&VGV6W27G2F&&G2@֖֗W2FRVVBf"vW"f6ƗFW0V"FRFvb6W'FBvR6VƖ֖FrFRVVBF&V6FR&vR#3bBSbG&6֗76ƖW2FVFGVV2VG26VFW&VBF@FRFW6v6vW2FRF֖7G&FfPG&gB7WVVFT"v( B6fRFPFVF( 7FRbFR62b6Ɩf&vFW$f&VG2( bFW6RFW6v6vW2V"w&VBW"'WB&VƗGFWvB6fRFRFVF2r2WG&ЧƗFvFW"F7G&7Bb6WFW&6Ɩf"ЦF2FV"( &vN( F7&V6RFPvGVFRbFVFvFW"FWFRGW&pG'W&G2( 6B&&&&&'&v"Ч&WV7WFfRF&V7F"b&W7F&RFPFVF%DE( FV7&V6rfw2F&VvFRFVF2FRf7FW7BvFFRV677FVFfRB֖w&F'VFvW&VB7V6W2BFR66VFW2vv&PVgBvFFVw&FVBG&涖rvFW"vVFRGVV2&RW&&RFW6RFW6vFf6F2FB6vf6FǒW76VFR7G2FFVF6VFW2"FFW6vRFRf7BFBFR&V7B2Vf&VFF67FW"( 6R7FFVBEu"6BFRV&Ɩ2G&gBfW'6v&R&VV6VBf"f&V&Ɩ2&WfWr@6VBgFW"&WfWrB&f'FPVBvV6W2WV7FVBVǒ#( FW&W7FVB'FW2vfR'GVGF&fFR6VG2FRV&Ɩ2&WfWpfW'6bFRG&g@7WVVFT"T2GW&rF@FR&W76W0v&R&W&V@ǒf"6ХvR6''VBg&VR7Ff VG27V&֗GFV@FRVFW"vvG2F6''0GW&rFRf&V&Ɩ2&WfWr@FwVVBg&VRVFrW26VBW&B( Фf&Rf&WGb6Ɩ&W'266&FrFEu"&Vw24d"DUD2WV7WFfPF&V7F DR$tU5B4TT5Db"uTTUE0`FP6Ɩf"ФDRtU5B45B( 2uT$DTTB7'Ff6pP&FV7FƖ6Pdb55FV@( 'W'7Bf&^( #w&&V֗Vvw&FR'6gB&.( 2S6VBrǒC"㓒FW&R&RЦrC#RVv'FW0$uT&vW7B6VV7F`bf&F$U VƗGVWG26Ɩf&FRF֖7G&ХvR&RsrFCR67&6WF&V@FG&gB( B@4"d5$4$TT&W"b6W'f6R6VFW 266W&VBFP6f FWF2tD5$TDD 7FFR&&B6V@4rUT䤔TD4DpWV7B2&vХDT4d$4RDu2$r$$P3c$tPFBFW `$uT0'FW2F&fFP%4eB5UU"5D$P&V'WGF2&6VB࣓bScBS##RFRF֖7G&FfPTBe$TP5DTUE2B5UĔU0S#rF6fR7FR67&VF4S3d3r( "52P'F&6W G&gBBFRf&G&gB77VVBf"V&Ɩ0&WfWr( FRF֖7G&FfRG&gB2vN( 0&fFVBFFRVBvV6W2f"FV 6VG2B&WfWr( Vw26B( gFW"FRvV6W2&WfWrB6V@FRF֖7G&FfRG&gBFRV&Ɩ0G&gBfW'6277VVBf"V&Ɩ2&WfWpB6VBFB2FRRvR6V@fRF&W7BF( Ю( ג66W&2FBF2F֖7G&FfPG&gB6VB&RGFVBF6'B6&7V@FR&6W72F2WfFVF'V&r0&VVvrf"F&VRV'2BFR7FFP&&BV'2F&RVFr'W6F6WFRFR&6W72&Vf&R'&vVfW0ff6RvRF( BrWB( 66VFV@Vw2FRvV7v6VBFf6FW@vVFRV&Ɩ2G&gB7WVVFT"T22f&Rf"f&V&Ɩ2&WfWpB6VB2&WV&VB'4U@U6WFW&6Ɩf&vFW"F7G&7B&fW0&W6WF7W'Fp6fW'N( 2&FW"F&FVFGVV2w7VG0fW&rB'&v7BfF2&RF7VVFVB6V6F2&WGvVV'&WGB&&&RBtN( 2VfbvFƖvW"F226''WB( 6R6BF7VVG2g&&V6VB6Ɩf&V&Ɩ2&V6&G27B&WVW7B'fB@vFW"vF6BFRf'7BVFV@fVFF&WfVFB&&'&Rv2FPG&frf&6RFRWG&ƗFvFW F7G&7Bb6WFW&6Ɩf&( 2&&B`F&V7F'2f"VƗ7FrvfW&"'&v( 0Vfrf'v&BvFFR6Ɩf"ЦvFW$fGvF2V&ƖW"tD>( 2Vv6ЧFfR6֗GFVRW&W76VB&VƖVbFBFP&FW"vVB&V6RrFW7FR7G&p6Fg&&F6VF"FPfV7FVB6VF"'&2FR6֗GFVR67FFVBFV"7W'@bFW"&FW"FBv2FFVBFFPFW&"7VFr&w&GFV'&W&RЧ6VFFfRFfBfF"Ԇf&BF@vVBWVBFR6VG&fW&V7@B7FFRvFW"&
