Indybay: Bay Delta Conservation Plan’s Actual Cost: $54.1 billion

Restore the Delta has recently found that it would cost $54.1 billion to build the BDCP’s Twin Tunnels, instead of the $24.5 billion that the Brown administration claimed it would cost. Restore the Delta found this $54.1 billion price tag from individual costs in BDCP documents of construction, operation and maintenance, interest on tunnel revenue bonds, and habitat restoration among others.
