March 19, 2017 - SACRAMENTO – Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced) submitted a letter to the State Water Resources Control Board on Friday, urging the Board to reject the proposed update to the Bay-Delta Plan and start the study process over gray adam california assemblymember mercedagain. Today is the last day for public comment on the proposal to take an additional 300,000 acre-feet of water annually from the Merced, Tuolumne, and Stanislaus rivers. Gray’s letter was accompanied by several letters from local government officials and over 1,000 additional petitions from local residents calling for a rejection of the proposal.

“The Water Board has put forth an incomplete and flawed proposal,” said Gray. “They provided almost no opportunity for local communities and experts to help draft an accurate or balanced plan. This water grab is so dangerous that it could turn the Central Valley into the Valley of Despair, an area stripped of opportunity, hope, and resources.”

In his letter, Gray summarizes his concerns focusing on the plan’s lack of analysis of groundwater and drinking water impacts, its inconsistent and contradictory enumeration of fish benefits, and its woefully inadequate assessment of economic impacts. Gray’s complete letter is attached here.

“This plan is a failure.” said Gray. “It was written in a vacuum and can only undermine efforts to reach agreements between stakeholders.”
Assemblymember Adam C. Gray represents the 21st Assembly District which includes all of Merced County and portions of Stanislaus County.
