Comments on BDCP development and proposed actions
Below are links to NSS comments regarding some of the elements of the BDCP and the background materials as well.  My focus has been to assure decisions are made based upon historical facts or truth, and not on the fabricated and confused data generated by consultants for DWR, Resources and the water contractors who want to drain the Sacramento River to allow more exports for development, oil and gas processing and other wealth-generating activities for individuals-not for the state.     II

MWD's plan for the Delta until tunnels are built appears to be shown in their board presentation of the BDCP which was renamed "WaterFix".  Same plan with another name change.  Looks like DWR/FEDS/USACE/MWD are planning to entirely replumb the California water conveyance system.  Actually, long before there was opportunity for genuine public input, the new water lines in many cities were be installed to handle the planned new exports from the Delta, it appears.

MWD barrier plans
The Bay Delta Conveyance Plan covers many issues.  When doing research to understand those issues, I realized historical facts were either being "reinterpreted" or else ignored.  There is usually a REASON a government agency and/or its consultants will propagate a lie or falsify historical data.  I decided to approach comments on the BDCP with first a look at the baseline used; then, when false baselines became quite evident, I looked at what purpose is served by the false baseline, and how the false baselines used are intended to affect outcome.  It also helps to understand WHO has been driving and funding the falsification of Delta and Northern California history, so where documented evidence establishes agencies, corporations and/or individuals involved in distributing data that resulted in the falsified baselines of the BDCP draft public document, those documents will be linked in my comments.
1998 to 2014 timeline helps to make sense of what has been going on here in the Delta, and for WHO:
WHO:  energy companies:

WHO:  MWD goals for California Water

WHO:  Kern, Westlands and the mega-farms of the lower Central Valley

WHO:  The silence of the .... media ownership.

WHO:  ICF, URS, et al.

Comment on the BDCP, incorporated into the California Water Plan: 
Archives of maps, documents and reports used
to verifiy the false baselines:
Ask yourself....If the computer modeling and baselines are developed using false or wrong data, doesn't that mean the outcome is also necessarily wrong?  Was the BDCP designed to fail and/or designed to distract attention as the revised joint State/Federal replumbing of California's water delivery system has been under construction?

Manipulating traffic Comment on the BDCP:  understated traffic impacts
Proposed vs constructed Comment on the BDCP:  why are so many of the "proposed" restoration projects already done or in progress?  How do these other projects fit into the BDCP and did the computer modeling account for these other projects?

example:  Folsom Dam Modifications and the Folsom South Canal
example:  MWD Delta Barriers proposal

The errasing of the Delta Comment on the BDCP:  Who decided the Suisun Bay should be filled in to become a marsh and why is the water use added to Delta water tables as if the flow is part of the Delta, since historically the areas were managed and reported seperately?
