Water supply

Water wars don't have to happen


From Chico-Enterprise Record - Monday, Oct. 10, 2011

Coalition response...The need to increase storage to offset future drought years is imperative to secure a reliable water future for California. While this year's water conditions have generally moved water stories off the front page of most newspapers, the need to resolve the conflict surrounding environmental restrictions on water deliveries is just as important as during recent years of drought. These regulations continue to impact water deliveries from the Delta. Despite the high levels of pumping this year, "3 million acre-feet of water flowed to the sea in just 10 days" as recognized by the editorial. Meanwhile, State and federal public water agencies continue to see their deliveries reduced because of ongoing environmental restrictions.

Yes, adding more storage to our state is important, as is continued conservation. Just as important is a resolution to environmental regulations that take water away from food production and 25 million Californians.
