    Jan 8, 2017 | The Fresno Bee

    Like other farmers in the San Joaquin Valley, I paid close attention last fall when the State Water Resources Control Board released a proposal that more freshwater flow from the Sierra stay in the San Joaquin River system on its journey to the Delta. The water board is proposing that a mere 40 percent of the flow in rivers feeding the San Joaquin - the Merced, Tuolumne and Stanislaus - make it to the Delta.

  8. Dona t bash federal water managersRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 10, 2016 | The Fresno Bee

    Tony Francois' statement of the diversion of "water of life" by federal water managers from endangered Valley wildlife species for Delta smelt protection, is nothing but an emotional fabrication of the truth. Vernal pools which host various species of fairy shrimp, the California tiger salamander and unique compositions of vernal pool wildflowers, and the associated grassy uplands containing prime habitat for the San Joaquin kit fox are not threatened by water diversions, but from the incessant conversion of this unique foothill habitat for thousands of acres of new and water-thirsty almond orchards.


  9. Temperance Flat distracts from real water solutionsRead the original story w/Photo

    Dec 13, 2016 | The Fresno Bee

    The Fresno Bee editorial "Temperance Flat is linchpin of Valley's water future" omitted critical facts about this project, including how much water it will reliably produce, who will actually benefit from that water, and how much it will really cost. The reality is that this dam will never produce as much water as promised and it will only be built if state and federal taxpayers are saddled with the lion's share of its multibillion-dollar price tag.
