“BDCP’s friends and family anxiously expressed hope that an infusion of additional millions of dollars and months of treatment would enable the project to recover,” quipped Bill Jennings, CSPA Executive Director. “However, the EPA comments coming on top of some 4,500 pages of searing reviews by municipalities, counties and water agencies that would be adversely impacted by the project, almost 2,000 pages of highly critical comments by environmental and fishing organizations, hundreds ...

Tom Stokely, Water Policy Analyst with the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), said he was not surprised with the delay in the BCP and accompanying federal documents. "This is not unexpected because we knew the environmental documents were fatally flawed," said Stokely. "The problem is that that they can't fix the BDCP because the project can't meet the requirements of the Endangered Species Act and other state and federal environmental laws."

Mike Orcutt, Hoopa Valley Tribe Fisheries Director, said, "Hopefully, logic will prevail as the Judge has the same issue that he will be issuing a ruling on from last year's case." "A New TRO (Temporary Restraining Order) would only be issued if plaintiff can show 'irreparable' harm from BOR's action and they are already getting maximum deliveries from Trinity anyway. Moreover, BOR has already established its water deliveries so they won't be harmed by reductions in their water deliveries....

LOS ANGELES – At City Hall on August 13, City Councilmember Paul Koretz, Los Angeles residents and California climate and water experts called on Big Oil to stop wasting California’s water.

SACRAMENTO, Calif.— The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service today proposed to protect more than a half-million acres of critical habitat across the West for the yellow-billed cuckoo, a songbird that lives along rivers and streams. The bird was proposed for Endangered Species Act protection in October 2013 as part of a 2011 agreement with the Center for Biological Diversity to speed protection decisions for 757 imperiled species nationwide. Today’s proposal would protect 546,335 acres of stream...
