Court rejects 2009 Salmon Biological Opinion: It is found to be unlawful

Press release

From Westlands Water District - Tuesday, Sept. 20, 2011

Coalition response...Endangered fish species in the Delta must be's the law. But the law must be applied in a lawful manner and a federal judge has repeatedly found that federal agencies have failed in that effort. Phrases such as unjustified, clearly erroneous, unlawful, bad science and others have been levied at the fishery agencies responsible for federal rules that govern the flow of water through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. The result of this failure to comply with law has been an ongoing legal effort that never should have taken place if the agencies had done their job right from the beginning. Once again the judge has directed the agencies to rework portions of the biological opinions that govern flows through the Delta to farmers and 25 million Californians. Hopefully they got the message and will correctly rewrite these rules.
