Western Growers has launched a digital media campaign aimed at intensifying awareness among urban Californians about the water being lost to the sea this winter and the need for federal and state leaders to exert pressure on water system operators to capture and store those El Niño waters before they are lost.

With another blast of El Niño’s rains coming in over the past weekend, the fish agencies in charge of regulating the Delta pumps must be challenged to immediately begin operating them at the maximum levels allowed under the Endangered Species Act.
