Butte County to file suit over ‘twin tunnels’ plan – California News



Oroville >> Butte County will be filing a lawsuit over the plan to bury a pair of tunnels under the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to move Sacramento River water south.

The supervisors voted unanimously Tuesday to file the suit against the Department of Water Resources over the so called “California WaterFix,” the largest part of which is the “twin tunnels” proposal.

The suit is based on a Sept. 13, 2016, letter the board sent to DWR pointing out objections to draft environmental documents that had been prepared to that point.

In the letter the county alleged the project would shift impacts from south of delta to the northern Sacramento Valley, without analyzing those impacts.

This story will be updated.
