Project Description:

Water agencies wish to transfer significantly more water from the Sacramento River watershed to corporate agriculture and urban sprawl in the most arid portions of California. Expanding this trend in the Sacramento Valley, particularly when groundwater is substituted for surface water, will jeopardize what remains of the hydrology that supports the majority of California’s economy, the Central Valley’s fish and flyway, and the largest estuary in North America: the Sacramento/San Joaquin Bay Delta. We seek to prevent the historic calamities made in the Owens and San Joaquin valleys.
