Salmon Committee Slams Peripheral Tunnel Plan - by Dan Bacher
The letter states, "BDCP promotes the unscientific scientific hypothesis that habitat restoration can substitute for flows. However, the State Water Resources Control Board has already indicated that Delta inflows and outflows are presently insufficient to help listed species recover their former abundance. BDCP would reduce Delta outlow, which contributes to the decreases in salmon smolt survival rates modeled by BDCP."

California family farmers band together to fight fracking - by Dan Bacher
“Water is the lifeblood of a farm — without clean, affordable water we cannot grow food,” said the Shafter almond farmer Tom Frantz, who caught on video the illegal dumping of fracking wastewater in an unlined pit next to an almond orchard. “This drought has already put many of California’s small and midsized farms on the brink. To allow fracking on some of California’s most fertile agricultural land will further devastate California’s bucolic heritage. I don’t think this is t...

Not one drop of water for California fracking! - by Dan Bacher
The state has promised 5-1/2 times more water rights than the water that actually exists, according to Carolee Krieger, Executive Director of the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN).

FracNatural The Unconventional Energy Boost - by Tomas DiFiore
Two studies: One study is based on algorithms of expansion under economic models with unquantified terms such as 'prudent development' of the Monterey Shale. And one study is based on the geologic strata, actual well numbers, production records per well, core analysis by industry logs, source rocks vs migration and trapping timescales, production trends over the course of time, maturity of fields and known reservoir assets vs new exploration, and shifting company profiles and investments.

Carolee Krieger, Executive Director of the California Water Impact Network (C-WIN), a member organization of the Environmental Water Caucus, said, “We thank them for the additional time, but this won’t change the fact that you can't produce more water by throwing money at it. The state has promised 5-1/2 times more water rights than the water that actually exists – and they can't get around that fact.” Photo of John Laird, Secretary of Natural Resources.
