The troops are being marshalled

The water wars of decades past are well renewed, with plans for a Peripheral Canal moving forward.

As early as October, the governor's blue ribbon task force is supposed to issue its recommendations on how to deal with the complex issues of invasive species, vulnerable levees, pollution, wildlife demands, agricultural needs and the exportation of water to Parts Previously Unwatered.

The popular pick among many is to build the canal, ensuring a higher quality (and probably quantity) of water to places far south of the Delta.

In fact, it seems everyone has a reason to like the canal. Except, of course, the people actually living in the Delta.

And according to some reports, they're the ones being overlooked.
