The deadline passed for an agreement yesterday so the Feds took over until AZ and CA can come on board.  Looks like IID is holding out for $200 million for the Salton Sea.

Just a drop in the bucket. I’m sure it will only get spent on more studies and impact reports....

I don’t think it’s unreasonable to ask for something for the Sea... even though 90% chance it will get pissed away. What’s that saying... hearts in the right place

What really needs to be determined is the carrying capacity of what the river provides in regards to human population, then reduce that number by half & set a moreatorium on that number.

We've probably already exceeded it. No one considers when enough is enough & just continues to put restrictions on usage hoping the problem will fix itself.

River water is currently oversubscribed with claims exceeding how much water is produced. The new agreement is adjusting demands to capacity, but realistically, nobody thinks we could begin to get by on the margins you suggest.

 

Problem is overpopulation that just keeps getting worse.  We need to start looking at the housing shortage as a people surplus.


"One final paragraph of advice: do not burn yourselves out. Be as I am - a reluctant enthusiast....a part-time crusader, a half-hearted fanatic. Save the other half of yourselves and your lives for pleasure and adventure. It is not enough to fight for the land; it is even more important to enjoy it. While you can. While it's still here. So get out there and hunt and fish and mess around with your friends, ramble out yonder and explore the forests, climb the mountains, bag the peaks, run the rivers, breathe deep of that yet sweet and lucid air, sit quietly for a while and contemplate the precious stillness, the lovely, mysterious, and awesome space. Enjoy yourselves, keep your brain in your head and your head firmly attached to the body, the body active and alive, and I promise you this much; I promise you this one sweet victory over our enemies, over those desk-bound men and women with their hearts in a safe deposit box, and their eyes hypnotized by desk calculators. I promise you this; You will outlive the bastards."
― Edward Abbey

  Unless there is a major population reduction in Cal. it's only going to get worst. Maybe a good pandemic is in order.
