CSPA Advisory June 14, 2010
CSPA disputes water availability for San Joaquin County from the American River
By Chris Shutes, CSPA Water Rights Advocate
June 14, 2010 -- CSPA has responded to a Water Availability Analysis developed by San Joaquin County in support of the County’s water rights Application 29657 to move water from the American River watershed, through EBMUD’s Freeport diversion.
CSPA claims that the Analysis assumes the adequacy of existing flows for the Delta, or else assumes that needed higher Delta flows will be met from sources other than the American River. CSPA recommends to the State Water Resources Control Board that no new diversions in the Central Valley be allowed until the Delta’s flow needs are met.
