Salmon Water Now Releases the 'Bullies of Westlands' Video


from Indybay newswire by Dan Bacher – Monday, Aug. 30, 1020

Coalition viewpoint…The half-truths presented in these videos will be well received by those who want to take water away from California farmers. Farmers have been blamed for taking water from the Delta and causing the collapse of the salmon industry. But views such as these videos discount the impacts that ammonium discharges, predator fish and invasive species have had on the fisheries. These types of videos will serve no purpose in securing a reliable future for California water.
