Governor to reveal controversial water plan
SACRAMENTO, Calif. (KGO) -- California's ongoing water wars are heating up. On Wednesday Governor Jerry Brown is expected to reveal a much anticipated plan to carry water from northern to southern California.
The Governor's proposal calls for building two underground tunnels that will divert water from the Sacramento River Delta to farmers in the Central Valley, as well as cities including Los Angeles and San Diego.
Critics say it will devastate the salmon and other fish in the Delta.
The project would be paid for with an $11 billion water bond set to go before voters in 2014.
