Coalition response...An increase in smelt population is good news. Crediting high flows in causing better habitat conditions and water quality leaves out one important factor in the smelt increase---food supplies. Scientists and biologists have agreed that ammonium from wastewater discharges have diminished the available food supply for smelt and other species. The high flows may have diluted the discharges and resulted in an increased food supply. However, it is important to remember that the high flows experienced this year resulted from Mother Nature and operation of the water supply systems through the Delta cannot duplicate the high flows.
