What will Twin Tunnels mean for the North State?
January 7, 2014 4:29 PM | No Comments
I'm sure there are as many answers to that question as there are residents of the North State, but one very well-informed resident -- and impassioned critic of the state's plan to replumb the Delta -- is Mount Shasta's Tom Stokely, formerly a Trinity County planner (keenly focused on the Trinity River) and now with the California Water Impact Network.
He'll be speaking in Redding tomorrow evening at a meeting of the Shasta-Trinity Fly Fishers, and the talk is open to the public. I have not heard Stokely's pitch on the subject, but I imagine it's well worth hearing if you've any interest in the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and how it all might shake out.
It's at the Park Marina Events Center, 1800 Park Marina Drive in Redding. More details:
