Water supply

Dinkey Creek: Not so Dinky summer of 2011


From Fresno Famous - Monday, June 27, 2011

Coalition response...Dinkey Creek is one example of many as to why California needs to increase its water storage system. Creeks and rivers throughout California are flowing at high rates of flow but little of that runoff is being captured for later use. Much of this water ends up flowing into the ocean. But to discount new surface storage projects in favor of underground storage is short-sighted. Both need to be a part of California’s water future. To declare before studies are even completed that the cost of water would be too high for farmers or any other segment of our population serves no purpose except to put up roadblocks to a secure water future for our state.
