[env-trinity] Devastating Science Review of OCAP Biological Opinion

The attached Scientific Review released late Friday of the Biological
Opinion of the Long Term Central Valley Project and State Water Project
Operations Criteria and Plan (OCAP) is a devastating indictment of the
inadequacy of that Opinion.  Since environmental documents for renewal of
many long-term water delivery service contracts, as well as the so-called
South Delta Improvement Project (vastly increase pumping of water from the
San Francisco Bay Delta to the south), are tiered off of the OCAP Biological
Opinion, it would seem that all three of these proposals face some very
serious problems, expressing it modestly.  The law simply has been breached
in the preparation of these documents.

 

Also attached is an article from the Contra Costs Times regarding this
report.
