David "Chicken" Nesmith of the Environmental Water Caucus and the Sierra Club Bay Chapter water committee called Coleman's informal proposal to move the dam "a nonstarter" and "another insult" to the Delta. "Quite frankly," he said, "East Bay MUD should be ashamed of itself for taking more water from the Delta when they know full well the disaster that is already happening there."
