"California Plans Taking Land for Huge Water Tunnels"
Oh My! This seems really troublesome...
This story was posted by Ellen Knickmeyer on the Associated Press website:
"SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- State contractors have readied plans to acquire as many as 300 farms in the California delta by eminent domain to make room for a pair of massive, still-unapproved water tunnels proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown, according to documents obtained by opponents of the tunnels.
Farmers whose parcels were listed and mapped in the 160-page property-acquisition plan expressed dismay at the advanced planning for the project, which would build 30-mile-long tunnels in the delta formed by the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers."
