Vol. #1: Protecting the Delta from DWR’s Proposed Tunnel with the National Historic Preservation Act
Thanks for signing up to receive updates on how the National Historic Preservation Act (NHPA) can help protect the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta from the impacts of constructing the Department of Water Resources’ (DWR) proposed Delta tunnel.
In this first update, we introduce the National Historic Preservation Act, suggest that the Delta’s culturally significant landscape deserves the NHPA’s protection, and outline next steps in protecting the Delta through historic preservation laws. Our goal is to share updates at least every other month with news about progress in using the NHPA to address the potential impacts of the proposed tunnel’s construction. We will also highlight ways you can get involved.
