The discussion will address the impact of the “Twin Tunnels” project on Placer County, and is currently the only opportunity for local residents to address their concerns about the project.

A highly-respected Panel will present:

Paul Helliker, Deputy Director for Delta and Statewide Water Management, Department of Water Resources specializing in the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP).

Dr. Jeffrey Michael, Director, Business Forecasting center, University of the Pacific and Auburn resident specializing in economic effects of public policy decisions on communities.

Dr. Samuel Sandoval Solis, Assistant Professor, UC Davis, specializing in environmental, scientific and engineering concerns, and resource planning and management and

The construction of the twin tunnels, which are part of the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP), is one of the main topics to be discussed.  Placer County citizens have concerns about shrinking water resources for the County and the area of origin water rights that may prevail due to the plan.  The discussion will illuminate Placer County water concerns in the context of statewide water interests, and the Panel will address your questions.
