More talk of Pyke’s plan

Stockton’s Delta Coalition talked today about whether to promote engineer Robert Pyke’s alternative proposal to the governor’s twin tunnels plan.

The general consensus was that, yes, the state should analyze all viable alternatives, although there’s not enough information to endorse Pyke’s plan.

“All we’ve got is a synopsis,” said Bill Jennings with Stockton-based California Sportfishing Protection Alliance.

“I personally think the horse is out of the barn already,” he added, with respect to the governor’s swiftly moving Bay Delta Conservation Plan.

Others encouraged further study:

“We don’t want to be the kind of group that’s always complaining” without offering constructive solutions, said Natalia Orfanos, with the A.G. Spanos Cos.

“We’re pushing not to be ‘Dr. No,’” said San Joaquin County supervisor Larry Ruhstaller.

“Instead of rushing to a foregone conclusion, there should be a rigorous investigation” of alternatives, said Stockton City Councilwoman Kathy Miller.
