REDDING, Calif. - A number of communities came out to rally against the proposed Delta Conveyance Project.

Tribal communities from the Winnemem Wintu Tribe, Yurok, Karuk, Hoopa Valley Tribe, and a number of other community members went before the Department Of Water Resources AND spoke against the Delta Conveyance Project. Public comment even reached its maximum capacity.

The DWR said the project would help with water recycling, recharge depleted groundwater and improve water quality.

Action News Now spoke to people in Redding who said this project doesn’t benefit the North State.

“We are talking more water out of the rivers every year,” said Rick Paz, a Redding resident. “There's less water for the fish, the natural environment, and all the other animals that depend on the water.”

Action News Now reached out to the Department of Water Resources.

In a statement, the DWR said, “We look forward to another public meeting to engage with to incorporate the community's feedback into the project as we work to secure an important water supply for people, businesses, agriculture, and the environment."
