California Governor Jerry Brown to take 300 farms by eminent domain to build underground water tunnels.
[link to hosted.ap.org]
California Governor Jerry Brown is planning on taking 300 delta farms by eminent domain the build underground water tunnels.

The farmers are fighting this, but Brown told them they could take payment from the government for their land, but they had to give it up one way or another.

This is Agenda 21 at its best. If this really happens, we have had it. None of us are owners of our own land, and it could be taken from us at any time by eminent domain.

link:SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- State contractors have readied plans to acquire as many as 300 farms in the California delta by eminent domain to make room for a pair of massive, still-unapproved water tunnels proposed by Gov. Jerry Brown, according to documents obtained by opponents of the tunnels.

Farmers whose parcels were listed and mapped in the 160-page property-acquisition plan expressed dismay at the advanced planning for the project, which would build 30-mile-long tunnels in the delta formed by the San Joaquin and Sacramento rivers.

"What really shocks is we're fighting this and we're hoping to win," said Richard Elliot, who grows cherries, pears and other crops on delta land farmed by his family since the 1860s. "To find out they're sitting in a room figuring out this eminent domain makes it sound like they're going to bully us ... and take what they want."

link:"All transactions are conducted, reviewed and approved internally by DCE staff and managers to maintain control and avoid unnecessary delays to schedule," the property plan outlines. "DCE shall seek to minimize external review and approval requirements."

DCE is short for Delta Conveyance Facilities Design and Construction Enterprise, a private-contractor group embedded within the state Department of Water Resources to work on the proposed tunnels.

In a June interview, Neil Gould, an attorney for the Department of Water Resources, said planning for the proposed tunnels was no more than 10 percent complete and had focused on assessing the environmental impact.

Asked if planning the process of eminent domain was warranted as part of the project's environmental review, Department of Water Resources spokeswoman Nancy Vogel said Monday in an email, "identification of properties that may be within the project area is necessary ... as DWR needs to estimate the proposed project's potential impacts to those properties."

Public water agencies paid for the property acquisition plan, Vogel said. Those include water agencies in the San Francisco Bay Area and Central California, as well as Southern California, she said.

Yes, this is very hard to believe, but eminent domain makes us all vulnerable.

Best Buy wanted to build a HQ at a location that a car dealership had been for decades.

The city condemned a parking lot to get BB the land.

They pretty much do whatever they want.
