Water supply

Water shortage ---- here we go again, maybe


By Gary Arant

From North County Times - Monday, Jan. 23, 2012

Coalition response...This author correctly portrays the "unpredictability" of rainfall patterns in California from one year to the next. Most water experts agree that a multi-pronged effort is needed to balance California's wet and dry years. Like a balanced investment strategy, California needs to maximize conservation, recycling and new storage in its water strategy. Leaving new water storage facilities out of the mix doesn't give us the balance...or security...we need for the future.


California DFG throws West Coast striped bass under the bus...


By Mike Spies

From Living with Birddogs - Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012

Coalition response...Striped bass is a sport fish that was introduced years ago to the Delta and it also has a ferocious appetite. Claiming that "there is almost no scientific data to link striped bass to reduction in native Delta species" ignores the research that has found juvenile salmon inside the stomachs of stripers. The large numbers of splittail and threadfin shad salvaged at the pumps during the past year was expected by State and federal biologists because of the water conditions. These biologists knew that the overall populations would be great, which also supported opinions to deny protected status to these species under the Endangered Species Act.
