More water for humans?
Author: Brandon Middleton
It looks that way due to a federal court ruling yesterday. But as the decision concerns only the federal government's salmonid biological opinion, it's not yet clear what the precise result will be–the government's delta smelt biological opinion, which has been overshadowed by the salmon biop in recent months, now takes on greater significance. We'll have to wait and see how the delta smelt biop affects the possibility of increased water deliveries after yesterday's salmon biop decision.
We will continue to monitor the litigation, but I also recommend staying tuned to Aquafornia for the latest developments.
