Assemblymember Eggman's Statement on WaterFix Audit
SACRAMENTO - The audit released today, which I requested with my Delta colleagues, further illuminates the many flaws of the WaterFix Project. The findings reveal that after 11 years of planning there remain more questions than answers about the viability and benefits of the project. Significant cost increases, failure to follow state law regarding contracts, inadequate expertise, and the absence of economic analysis or a financial plan – this is what more than a decade of planning has resulted in. One can only imagine the boondoggle that will result if this project were ever to advance to the construction stage. It is time for a different direction.
For immediate release
