Drought? What drought?

Here is a brief but mind-boggling part of the presentation Bill Jennings of California Sportfishing Protection Alliance made at the state’s recent drought urgency workshop.
 
 
The officials who manage the state’s water supply drain our reservoirs and ship water to south-Valley farms in a reckless, short sighted manner as if there is no drought and a March miracle is a sure thing.
 
It’s not only appalling mismanagement, which puts the fisheries and our water supply at risk. It’s a clear example why the state cannot be trusted to manage Delta tunnels. Big Ag will pound its fist on the table and state officials will compromise our region to oblige them.
