Fountain Valley, CA (May 2, 2019) – The Municipal Water District of Orange County (MWDOC) Board President, Brett R. Barbre issues the following statement in response to the Newsom Administration’s executive order advancing a single tunnel conveyance solution for the Bay Delta.

“We are relieved that the Governor is committed to the long overdue completion of the State Water Project. However, we encourage Governor Newsom to take advantage of more than a decade’s worth of careful scientific analysis and a quarter of a billion dollars spent to identify the best solution for all of California. The twin tunnel California WaterFix is the best investment we can make in the future of our State. Two-tunnels is the best way to achieve dual benefit of reliable water conveyance and protecting the environment in the Delta.”
