My turn: MCWRA opposes SB 1199

By From page A4 | July 16, 2014

Mountain Counties Water Resources Association advocates for the water interests of its members in the Sierra Nevada mountain communities. We have significant concerns about Senate Bill 1199, “Wild and scenic rivers: Mokelumne River.”
SB 1199, authored by Oakland Senator Loni Hancock, designates almost 37 miles of the Mokelumne River in Calaveras and Amador counties as a “wild and scenic river” in the California Wild and Scenic Rivers System. (“Wild and scenic” is dedicated environmental water use in the area for in-stream flows required below most major dams and diversions by State Water Resources Control Board licenses, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission licenses, and agreements with other agencies and wild and scenic river designations.) This section of the Mokelumne is in Senator Tom Berryhill’s district.
