Coalition response...This is good news not only for the economy of the San Joaquin Valley but for California as a whole. Increased employment and planted acreages means an improvement for those communities that have suffered in recent years because of reduced water deliveries to local farms. Hopefully this increase will prove to those who to continue to discount the real impacts on west side farms and communities by claiming that statewide agriculture is just fine.

(The following is in response to the above two articles.)
Coalition response...Increased storage must be a part of California’s water future, as pointed out in this article. Planning now is a necessity if our citizens and farms are going to endure future droughts, which will occur. As stated, new storage is important for California’s water future and improved conveyance will help those water supplies to be used as efficiently as possible.
