|A guest commentary from Roseville Mayor, Susan Rohan.|
On behalf of the Roseville City Council, I wanted to provide an update on where the City of Roseville is in responding to the current draft of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP), which includes the twin water tunnel alternative. In December 2013, I provided the community with an update, in this newspaper, on where the city was with its comprehensive review of the BDCP. This review has taken several months and has relied on an array of legal, hydrological modeling and biologist expertise. With less than 30 days left for the public to comment on this document – I am left with a conclusion that says it all – the current draft of the BDCP is incomplete, fraught with bad assumptions, incorrect data and continues to provide an unclear picture on how the operation of the proposed twin tunnels will impact Folsom Lake – our primary water supply.
