Dam and reservoir building nearly ground to a halt in 1982. Now they keep demolishing the
ones already built, keep finding excuses to delay new ones, and when rainfall fills them up
they drain all the water away.
These people are either stupid, or they’re evil, and I don’t think they’re stupid.
They’re manufacturing a crisis.

From their own statement, ” algae-infested reservoirs”,,,, Indicating that there is No flowing water, right???…so where does this new dried up river help the fish and wildlife????Have they ever considered that many low rise reservoirs that flow slowly all year could provide water and habitat year round….Low rise dams with slow flow long runners to ponds is an answer…..

“At its heart, this is really a fish-restoration project,” said Mike Belchik, senior fisheries biologist for the Yurok Tribe, which has long lamented the decline of salmon on its ancestral territory in the basin. “That’s why we’re doing this.”

“The dams are not used for irrigation, municipal water or flood control.”

So…
We’ve got to better than this.

Yes, the drought has created a shortage of water because the government is purposefully creating a crisis by dumping water into the ocean. But these dams aren’t water supply. I’m all in favor of calling these scumbags out about their destruction of our country, but we need to make sure we stay credible.

This is an example of why I don’t vote for water bonds anymore. They don’t increase water supply!

I vote no on most everything, Money barely goes where it is suppose to go. Only to their pet projects which happen to be family, friends and donors projects.

We don’t have a shortage or water or energy in California, we have a shortage of common sense and intelligence in Sacramento.

“The rest of the funding for the dismantling effort is coming from voter-approved water bonds in California.”
I thought water bond money was for adding water storage for the state? who approved this?
