|Editorial by Mayor Susan Rohan|
On Dec. 9, the state of California released its latest draft of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan and related draft environmental documents. The 9,000-page BDCP and related 25,000-page environmental impact report are the next step in a long process to find ways to solve decades-long water supply and water quality issues that have plagued the Sacramento-San Joaquin Bay Delta and water exporters in Southern California. The last draft of the BDCP, which was publicly released last spring and summer, created a significant amount of concern for Roseville and others in our region.
Most specifically, the last draft projected that Folsom Reservoir could go to “dead pool” as often as once a decade. “Dead pool” is a scenario where the water level in Folsom Reservoir drops below the level of the pipes that draw water to Roseville’s water treatment plant. This scenario would be devastating to our community and its vibrant economy. Our community, and in fact, our entire state, deserves a plan that presents a range of viable options to address both the natural and manmade circumstances that could cause this scenario. One part of the state cannot be sacrificed for the prosperity of another.
