Tell the Bureau of Reclamation to Release Trinity Water to Avert a Klamath River fish kill
Comments due on July 27th
Please request the BOR address the following four points in the EA/FONSI:
(1) The supplemental flow releases should begin in early August 1 to ensure that the flows in the lower Klamath River do not fall below 3200 cubic feet per second (cfs), and should continue though the entire salmon migration,
(2) All Trinity water allocated for the supplemental flows should be accounted for in a way that assigns any risk of shortage in 2012 or future years to water allocated for diversion to the Central Valley, not to the releases allocated to the Trinity River,
(3) The assessment should evaluate additional years beyond year 2012. Let’s make sure the salmon numbers stay high,
(4) Humboldt County has the right to their 50,000 acre feet of water in the Trinity. The assessment should confirm the validity of the Humboldt County’s water rights and the authority to use water under that contract for supplemental flows and other beneficial instream uses for salmon.
Please email comments by close of business Friday, July 27, 2012, to Don Reck at dreck [at] usbr.gov.
