Judge denies Westlands' request to block higher Trinity River flows - by Dan Bacher
"The potential harm to the Plaintiffs from the potential, but far from certain, loss of added water supply in 2015 or 2016 does not outweigh the potentially catastrophic damage that 'more likely than not' will occur to this year’s salmon runs in the absence of the 2015 FARs," ruled Judge O'Neill.
