Southern California needs water, but farmers in the California Delta are opposed to a proposed canal to convey water between San Francisco and Sacramento. "We'd be displaced and have to figure out a whole new life," said Peter Hunn, a cucumber farmer. Hunn and 160 other farmers have refused the state access to their lands, and the state has sued for access to perform a survey for the canal, which could cost up to $7.4 billion to build.
