Will you be at the last “public hearing” on Delta Tunnels?

tunnels hearing icon

Tuesday, July 28, is the last of two public hearings on the Delta tunnels project. Help us transform the open house.

Our goal: a video of how large we really are to share with the Secretary Jewell at the Department of the Interior and with President Obama. You can be provided with insightful questions to ask if you’d like or help you craft your own thoughts. Some spirited, yet respectful activities are being planned to transform their dull open house into a party to oppose the tunnels. Let’s win this thing once and for all! We need to pack the “public hearings” on the Delta Tunnels!!

Mark your calendars for Tuesday in Sacramento — that’s where we will be from 3:00 to 5:30 p.m at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in downtown.. If you cannot make the July 28 date from 3:00p to 7:00p, there is a second public meeting on July 29 in Walnut Grove (see here).

We have buses departing from four different locations! Find out more about these public hearings and how to RSVP for a bus by going to our website here and scrolling down. Thank you for your support!

From Our allies at Restore the Delta.
