[env-trinity] Capitol Weekly: Politics and policy collide in fight over water (but Jerry Meral says the Delta cannot be saved?)

It's interesting how the Capitol Weekly article says one of the State's goals is save the Delta's ecosystems, because I was told on by Jerry Meral on April 15 that the Bay-Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) is not about saving the Delta and it never has been.  How then does BDCP (Twin Tunnels) fit into the Delta Plan? 


"The goal of the BDCP is to protect the fragile Delta's ecosystem while reliably delivering water supplies to Californians."

This is from Restore the Delta at http://www.restorethedelta.org/or-is-it-the-point/

While speaking with a representative from the California Water Impact Network at a recent meeting with Northern California’s Native American Tribes, Jerry Meral said, “BDCP is not about, and has never been about saving the Delta. The Delta cannot be saved.”

Now if Governor Brown and State officials would just stop pretending it’s a habitat plan to save fish when speaking with the press."
