The State Water Resources Control Board (Board) will hold its final regional workshop on proposed rule changes to the Water Quality Control Plan and unimpaired flow proposals for the Delta on Tuesday, January 3, 2017, in Sacramento. The proposed changes would increase unimpaired flows from the San Joaquin River by 40 percent in order to aide salmon populations, resulting in 350,000 acre-feet of water that should be made available for beneficial uses to instead flow through the Delta to the ocean.

In response to President Obama’s signature on the Water Infrastructure Improvements for the Nation Act (WIIN), Western Growers released the following statement by WG President and CEO Tom Nassif: 

“Even though it has taken us a while to get to this point, we are pleased that Congress has finally passed, and the President has signed into law, legislation that provides a measure of drought relief to rural communities and urban residents throughout California.
