Corrections for the Week of July 17 

The length of the water tunnels and caseload of Alameda County Public Defenders.

Our June 12 and June 19 cover stories, "Tunnel Vision: Part One Delta in Peril" and "Tunnel Vision: Part Two Rivers in Peril," misstated the length of Governor Jerry Brown's proposed water tunnels. They are currently proposed to be 35 miles long — not 39 miles. The length we reported came from an earlier proposal of the water tunnels that has since been changed by the Brown administration.

Our July 10 cover story, "Balancing the Scales of Justice," should have stated that each lawyer in the Alameda County Public Defender's Office assigned to felony cases carries an average of 273 of them per year (not at a time), while attorneys responsible for misdemeanors oversee 353 cases on average annually (not at a time).
