On May 14 2014, CSPA Executive Director Bill Jennings joined Barbara Barrigan-Parrilla, Restore the Delta; Bob Wright, Friends of the River; Osha Meserve and Local Agencies of the North Delta; in a media call to discuss the flawed BDCP process. During the call presenters pointed out the lack of an Implementing Agreement , the failure of water exporters to make their financial payments, the ceding of partial control of the State Dept. of Water Resources to contractors, and the harm that would result from Sen. Feinstein’s S2198.
In his comments Bill Jennings observed, “Failing to reveal the Implementation Agreement sabotages the ability of the public to substantively comment on the project. It makes a mockery of transparency, due process and meaningful public review.”
