The California Department of Water Resources announced Friday that water allocations from the State Water Project have been reduced to 35 percent from 40 percent due to a record dry January and February, according to a new release. The cuts also reflect a grim weather outlook for March and pumping restrictions that were imposed beginning in December to protect Delta smelt and salmon.

Governor Jerry Brown has appointed DeeDee D’Adamo, former aide to U.S. Rep. Dennis Cardoza (D-Merced) and a longtime member of the Air Resources Board, to the State Water Resources Control Board.  WG strongly recommended D’Adamo’s appointment and helped build bipartisan legislative support for her as well.
