Attention disaster movie directors of 2023: "State officials Wednesday recommended construction of a $13-billion tunnel system that would carry water under the troubled Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta to southbound aqueducts, a project that would replumb a perpetual bottleneck in California's vast water delivery network." The plan still has to tunnel under an assortment of political and environmental obstacles, so the earliest possible completion date for the two 150 foot deep tunnels is 2022. [LAT]
