Modesto councilman rallying support to contribute in effort to fight state water plan
BY KEN CARLSON
A Modesto councilman called on the city to contribute toward efforts to resist a state water grab that's become an emotionally charged issue in the region.
Councilman Mani Grewal said at Tuesday's council meeting the state plan to take large amounts of Tuolumne River water to rejuvenate the Sacramento-San Joaquin River delta would create a "regulatory drought" in Stanislaus County.
City leaders didn't say how much could be spent opposing the state proposal. The matter will be brought back for discussion.
