MWD votes to buy 20,000 acres of island farmland in Sacramento-San Joaquin delta - LA Times

MWD votes to buy 20,000 acres of island farmland in Sacramento-San Joaquin delta - LA Times: The board of Southern California's water importer voted Tuesday to buy 20,000 acres of farm islands in the heart of the state's north-south plumbing system.

The land is owned by a private company that for years has tried to develop a water storage project on the property. But the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California says it has other plans for the four islands in the Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta, which is east of San Francisco.
