7:41 am
7:42 am
>> welcome back. it is sunday morning and it will be a great day but so far as usual, what do we start off with? >> a lot of fog and even some drizzle in oakland. a live look outside in the east bay over dublin and pleasanton. sunny skies will prevail a little bit later today. a few degrees warmer than yesterday and we are getting ready for another warm-up. current conditions in the fifties, 55 in santa rosa. >> good morning.
7:43 am
we are off to a fairly typical summertime sunday for the bay area. fog and low clouds along the shoreline. a little bit of pressure in the gulf of alaska will keep things on the relatively mild side. usual low clouds to start with and then sunny in the valleys and a little bit of a warming trend. out the door this morning, clouds on the coast, some low clouds along the bay pushing inland. it will be mostly sunny today and on future cast, overnight you can see fog and low clouds forecast along the shore. they all pulled back by around noon today except along the shoreline of san mateo county and san francisco. low clouds will be pulling back
7:44 am
to the short tonight and it will keep things pretty cool for the beach today but with high pressure reasserting itself, things will warm up a little bit over yesterday's highs. if you're heading out tomorrow, at the airport, 30 mi. per hour wind and 73 degrees. if you're headed to the southland it looks good. we are blessed with them depending on if you like that kind of thing. denver has some thunderstorms in the forecast and chicago and new york look ok. most locations in the '50s overnight tonight. 56 in livermore. 58 at mount view. the pinpoint forecasts for the south bay, palo alto 78 degrees. 79 in cupertino. 84 in morgan hill.
7:45 am
80 degrees in san jose. 87 degrees in san ramon. livermore tops out at about 87. 81 in sonoma. 84 in petaluma and 79 and can field. we will look for things to warm up monday tuesday and wednesday which the low 90s. by thursday things will peak and by next weekend we will cool off a little bit. >> water in california is probably as valuable or more valuable than gold in the long term and that is why governor brown is pushing a plan to move water from north of the sacramento delta up to southern california. >> we have farmers, fish,
7:46 am
environmentalists, citizens, and we need to make it all work somehow. i want to get this thing done the best i can. >> along with the fed's he is proposing a 35 mi. pair of tunnels to drop 150 ft. underground and under the delta to bring sacramento river water down to tracy. the water would then go to homes in l.a. and farmers in the central valley. plan also calls for restoration of the delta habitat which has suffered in recent years. the estimate is $23 billion. one man questioning how works is the assistant general manager of the contra costa water district. your area is probably the most impacted with this plan >> that's right, 100 percent of our water comes from the delta. >> this is not the first time,
7:47 am
jerry brown had the periphery canal the first time. >> that was a 25,000 ft cubic foot per second canal that would do the same thing, take water from the north and pump it to the south. this morning the flow in the sacramento river is 21,000 cubic feet per second. this proposal is to use tunnel's instead of a canal and go under the delta at 9000 cubic feet per second so it is considerably size down but the most important thing about the plan is how it would be operated and that is unspecified. we don't know how it would be operated and we don't know what the water supply benefit is to southern california. the current plan to give them even less water than they get now which makes you wonder why they would spend millions of dollars. they don't have the certainty that they wanted when they started the planned six years ago. we don't know what the flow will be for the fish and we
7:48 am
don't know where habitat restoration will be so there are a lot of unknowns. >> is it smart to be giving our water to people for their lawn and swimming pools in the south? that is what irritates people >> it does but i would like to remind people in the bay area that while the metropolitan water district in southern california takes 1.5 million a. feet out of the delta, the bay area takes the same amount so we're both doing the same thing. >> then it comes to the second part, water is so valuable in california. we do not want to give away our water. the other thing is how it will affect the delta because the delta is already having salt water flow into it. it depends on fresh water coming in from the sacramento
7:49 am
river. if you start diverting that water to the south would affect that have on the delta? >> that is precisely the problem and there are studies that show it will increase the salinity in the delta. we have recently written a letter to the secretary of alerting him to the fact that preliminary documents have ignored that and we are very concerned that the environmental documents that come out fully disclose impacts on the contra costa water district and fully medicate them. what they've done so far is essentially not disclose them and proposed mitigation of more studies which is just wrong >> it was fascinating when the governor unveiled the plan this week and said we would build 2 35 mi. long tunnels and which are bigger than the caldecott tunnel. this is a massive undertaking and they do not even have it penciled out about the cost? >> no, and that's part of the
7:50 am
problem. if everyone agreed on this today would take them two or three years to get going and seven years to build it so the best case scenario is 10 years away and in the meantime still love not solved any of the problems in the delta. there's finally a coalition of water users that depend on the delta working together to try to get levee protection going, projects that will help the delta today because even if this were to solve all the problems, it is 10 years away and we don't have 10 years to wait >> coupes for this? >> water users are saying they will pay for it although if you read their reactions to the governor's announcement, they say this is great that the governor did this but we want to see what we will get out of it before we sign-on so if they're going to pay they want to know what they will get. >> this is a topic we'll come back to because this is probably the biggest public works project
7:51 am
in the state has ever seen. thanks for coming in. we will be right back. ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

problem because of a lack of advertisements. i have a mobile application and you do not see the advertisements >> 85% of their revenue comes from advertising and that mainly comes from the ads that you see on the side of your facebook wall. they cannot put that on a mobile phone because there'sso they are trying sponsored stories where sponsor items that you normally put on yourself, and are sponsored by corporations or businesses. they say there is an indication that they are effective and people look at them but they have had that in limited numbers so far. >> the entire, we call it tech but your original visions were wires and then it became chips

anywhere. we were talking about all the kind of surrogate seeing the whole thing and now we the public reference jerry brown but believe me, in terms of the delivery system, jerry brown is up with us criticizes >> but when you know you have money out there >> but the difference is the money was not spent, is saved. it is a counter narrative at a time when we were asking the private sector to step up and step in to save the sparks were closed. nobody stole any money. >> it was squirreled away with people out there contributing their money and then i'm not saying it was criminal but it is a pr nightmare >> question is, is every special fund similarly audited and
8:23 am
recorded? let me just say this and the mayor understands, there are special funds that exist in government. i know this and i know mayor brown knows this, when you put budgets together there are special funds there when you need them that the executive branch is quite familiar with at times when you need them the most. >> as mayor he turnaround in say you did not tell me about it? >> it happened to my homeless fund near the end of my administration. willie's guy comes in >> my guy! >> at that moment he was your guy. those are the kind of people will leap in i'm just saying, it is just the facts >> the difference in my administration is that i never required accountability. operate under the assumption
