WG Urges Governor to Maximize Capture and Conveyance of El Nino Precipitation

In light of the strengthening El Niño weather pattern, Western Growers delivered a letter to Governor Brown last week calling on his Administration to “capture as much precipitation as our infrastructure will allow.” The letter reinforces the fact that we cannot afford to let a drop of wasted water flow out to sea this wet season and encourages the Brown Administration to develop a plan in partnership with the federal government to “establish El Nino protocols for the Delta pumping plants that result in the state and federal pumps being operated at their designed maximum capacity to convey water to storage facilities south of the Delta in major runoff/flood conditions.”


We encourage you to add your voice to the discussion by sharing this letter on your social media platforms.
