Sacramento Delta plan badly designed due to corruption / incompetence


Aquanomics rightfully slams the Calif. Gov. Jerry Brown’s plan to shunt water around the Sacramento Delta via two big tunnels and send it south.

I give the current proposal an “F” for (1) subsidies to special interests, (2) inefficiency, and (3) unsustainability. In other words, it’s another example of policy failure in my home state, which saddens me.

Bottom Line: California needs a wholesale reorganization of the way it manages water in policy and practice. I’m not going to waste my time on its current failures until I see some sign of seriousness.
