So what? You think that's going to change anything? The well connected Agri-Interests will see to it that "business as usual" continues, which will mean that farmers with "senior" water rights will continue to 1) receive 100% allocations, 2) NOT grow their crops, and 3) sell their allocations to farmers (who have lower senior rights and thus do not receive full allocations) who DO grow things-at a 1000% markup. And make a killing for doing basically nothing except being in the fortunate position of "having been here first".

That's the real crux of the West Valley drought and water issue. The Delta Smelt is a sort of red herring (no pun intended) to distract your attention from that.

Hopefully we will see a lower degree of water shortage this summer. However, I have heard certain parts of LA are already doing water rations.

How about we wait and see what the next few years bring rather than judging the situation on one year of higher than average rain fall after 4 years of little rainfall.

Truer words have never been spoken. Seems so strange that just 3 years ago we were getting buckets and now we get nothing.

Think that's what DCMann2 was referring to when he mentioned getting lots of rain "3 years ago".
