Read between the lines on this one and you’ll learn who a few key figures are, who want the status quo on water management. Some are told what to do by the Governor. For other, no new water for people and farms is their mission.
Doug Obegi, with the NRDC should be no surprise to anyone. Disregard for the human species is nothing new for the NRDC. Ask Felicia Marcus, Chair of the State Water Resources Control Board.

Face to face, he kicks the can down the road by basically saying the SWRCB has to decide with the information they are given.

It’s a short meeting when he learns one farms within the CVP.
