Instead of letting a small group of bureaucrats impose this costly habitat plan, the state should look at less-expensive alternatives: privately funded seawater desalination, better water recycling, the development of markets and a more local focus on fixing levees. (Most of the state’s water simply flows into San Francisco Bay, so some argue that dams in the northern Sacramento Valley to provide additional storage would be a better use of funds -- that is another debate.)Maybe they should just wait until they actually have money!
