A panel appointed by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger says California must build new dams and change how it channels water through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta.
The seven-member Delta Vision task force on Friday stopped short
of saying where dams should be built or whether water should be
piped around or through the delta to cities, farmers and wildlife.
The report comes after 10 months of deliberations. It says the state should study the various routes that could funnel water to Southern California and the San Francisco Bay Area.
Changing how California moves water is one of 12 strategies the panel is recommending to restore the ailing delta and secure the state's water supplies.
