Gov. Jerry Brown told the Calif. Association of Water Agencies in May that he'll "do everything humanly possible" to complete his proposed Delta project.

The Brown administration released an environmental study on Monday of its $25 billion plan that includes two massive tunnels to move water from Northern California to other parts of the state. Gov. Brown touts the plan as a conservation strategy to protect fish and wildlife while securing the state's water supplies. We'll discuss what's in the proposal, which will undergo a four-month public comment period before being finalized.
