At a time when most people are finding the economy and the upcoming election the top items on their worry list, it is difficult to get them thinking about the perennial problem of where California will find the water to keep going. Despite the temptation to push it aside, the Delta Vision Blue Ribbon Task Force report summarized in today’s S.F. Chronicle today is crucial reading. The delta won’t wait while we sort out other problems before making a long-term plan for Califoria’s water ways. The recommendations in the report are sensible and should be followed up as soon as possible. As a start, the Governor should ask to have the delta defined as a National Heritage area by 2010 so public/private partnerships can be forned to preserve this vital heritage for the state.
