C-WIN in the News on Peripheral Tunnels
C-WIN has been in the news a lot lately regarding the Peripheral Tunnels Project. Below are several articles of interest regarding C-WIN’s efforts to oppose the Peripheral Tunnels Project. You can also read a 1980 article on the Peripheral Canal from New West Magazine on “How the Big Oil Companies are Grabbing California’s Water… and other tales of power and deception along the Aqueduct” here. While many of the players and landowners have changed, it seems like some things never change like cost overruns and special deals for a privileged few that really don't make economic or environmental sense.
