Project Description:

Our rivers haven’t been more threatened since the go-go years of dam building ended in 1978. With severe drought fueling a push to return to that era, President Trump and this Congress are attacking our environmental protections and California will allocate $2.7 billion to new storage projects this year. FOR is organizing to save the SF Bay-Delta from a host of proposed water projects that would cost at least $25 billion to increase water supply by less than 5%. We are promoting sustainable water solutions that offer a more reliable and equitable water supply portfolio for the state.
