The Twin Tunnels and SF Waterways — Where's the Balance?

Wednesday,  March 8, 2017

First Presbyterian Church
1510 5th Ave., San Rafael, CA 94901

Lecture: 7:00 - 9:00 pm

The Twin Tunnel project is a contentious and confusing one. If you're like most of us, you could use some accurate, updated information that answers important questions.

• Will the Bay Delta Water Quality Control Plan save enough water for the salmon and smelt? How much is enough? Why is that so important?
• Why have Diane Feinstein and Barbara Boxer feuded over an end-of-term $500 million water bill for California?
• Might the Twin Tunnels drain the Sacramento River in a dry year?
• How will it affect the northern sections of San Francisco Bay?
• Can local action make a difference, when state and federal agencies claim jurisdiction?

The waterways of California are all connected, flowing into and sustaining one another, and providing habitat for migratory and resident wildlife populations. Though the Twin Tunnel Project may seem to be far from Marin, its effects will be felt across the entire Bay area. Join us to hear what experts from the Bay Institute, the Tuolumne River Trust and the Golden Gate Salmon Association have to say about it all.
