Bechtel and the Peripheral Canal

Researched By Leora Johnson and Lizbeth Malmstead

A highly controversial report pushing for the building of a peripheral canal on the California Delta was funded by Bechtel Corporation; one of the world’s largest engineering and construction firms is a leading advocate throughout the world of the privatization of water systems. Studies reveal a legacy of unsustainable and destructive practices that have reaped permanent human, environmental and community devastation around the globe attributed to Bechtel. Restore the Delta, a coalition including Delta farmers, environmentalists, fishermen, business leaders, the faith community, recreation enthusiasts, and everyday folks, issued a powerful statement calling into question many of the findings in the Public Policy Institute’s report.
