|State Water Board Actions to Limit Water Use for Agriculture Cause for Broader Concern
As the State Legislature passed a budget overflowing with an unprecedented surplus, the state’s water reservoirs have an unprecedented deficit. Due to the current drought conditions and historically low water reserves, the Governor has already issued two emergency proclamations to address and prepare certain regions of the state for extremely dry conditions for the foreseeable future. The first of these proclamations covers the North Coast and Marin Peninsula, fed by the Russian River Watershed. The second proclamation covers the Klamath River, Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, and Tulare Lake Watershed counties. On June 15, the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB or Board) approved an emergency regulation to curtail the diversion of water to address severe water shortages in the Russian River Watershed.
