California water, Op-ed, POW, Salmon and fish, Threats to agriculture, Water rights

Joe on the local radio station KSYC 103.9 tonight said it will be partly cloudy with highs to 70 on Friday.

It is a bit windy tonight, but I see stars, so bring your shades and sunscreen to the Water Rally Protest tomorrow.

Mike and Jess will be waiting at Mean Gene’s Beacon gas station in Greenview to provide directions out to Mark and Cyndi Baird’s Wild Rose Ranch.  There will also be signs to follow.

The drive from I-5 at Yreka over Forest Mt. through Fort Jones to Greenview takes about 20 to 25 minutes and then it is another 10 minutes to the ranch.

See ya all at 11 a.m.  !!!

Scott Valley Protect Our Water is hosting a Water Rally Protest against the California Dept. of Fish and Game, because the state agency claims ranchers must get a Permit in order to TURN ON their legal irrigation water.  Those that have Water Rights can legally turn on their water on April 1st in Scott Valley.  So Mark Baird will legally TURN ON his water.

Scott Valley POW disagrees with Fish and Game and its reasoning for this re-invented Permit.  We stand on our Constitutional Rights. We own property and the government cannot legally take it away.  In California, a Water Right is a Property Right.

Enviros, liberals and Progressives and striving to destroy the right to private property. We are standing up to them.

Come and stand with us!!!

LaMalfa Comments on Gov. Brown’s Withdrawal from Budget Talks

(Sacramento) – Senator Doug LaMalfa (R-Richvale) released the following statement regarding Governor Jerry Brown’s withdrawal from budget negotiations:

“The governor has proposed to increase spending by $26 billion in the next three years but is surprised Republicans don’t support his plan?    Real reforms such as a spending cap, pension formula change, and regulatory relief are sensible reforms that would improve California’s worst- in- the- nation business climate and credit score.

If Governor Brown walks away from negotiations, California’s government will stay just as dysfunctional as ever. Republicans are not going to roll over and capitulate to raising taxes on families, but we can work together on finding real common sense solutions.  This is not rocket science – it is the same budgeting that real families across California are forced to deal with every day.”

Senator Doug LaMalfa is a lifelong farmer representing the fourth Senate District including Shasta, Tehama, Butte, Colusa, Glenn, Siskiyou, Sutter, Del Norte, Placer, Trinity, Yuba and Nevada counties.

Green regulation in CA: Academic fraud, retaliation, and science denial « Hot Air

Uncategorized

This story exposes the connection between government regulators and Academia better than any I’ve seen in a long time. The people of California should demand an accounting of the attack on academic freedom at UCLA, the use of fraudulent researchers at CARB, and the destruction of private sector business on the basis of highly selective choices in scientific research.  Find out more about this story at FIRE, which is defending Enstrom.

Henninger: Public Unions–Is California Next? – WSJ.com

Uncategorized

Wisconsin’s public union fight is the battle of the century in American politics. But while the governors of Wisconsin and Ohio have led the pushback, it’s possible that the public-pension battle could shift in the future to California—with or without the participation of its governor, the endlessly recyclable Jerry Brown. Even in this bluest of states, the ground is shaking beneath the unions.

State’s drought officially ends

California’s drought is over. But don’t get carried away.

That was the basic message in a proclamation issued today by Gov. Jerry Brown, which rescinds a statewide drought emergency declaration adopted in February 2009 by his predecessor.

The proclamation was timed with the latest statewide snow survey by the state Department of Water Resources, which found California’s snowpack at 165 percent of average for the season.

The snowpack provides one-third of all the water consumed in California by people, businesses and farms. Most of the rest comes from groundwater.

“While this season’s storms have lifted us out of the drought, it’s critical that Californians continue to watch their water use,” Brown said in a statement. “Drought or no drought, demand for water in California always outstrips supply. Continued conservation is key.”

History has shown that drought is part of the regular weather cycle in California. Even without shortages, conservation reduces utility bills, saves expenses by local utility agencies, and ensures adequate streamflow for fish and other environmental needs.

DWR estimates it will be able to deliver 70 percent of requested State Water Project deliveries this year. This water, collected in Oroville Reservoir and pumped through the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta, primarily serves cities in Silicon Valley and Southern California. The estimate likely will be increased in coming weeks as hydrologists make adjustments for snowpack and runoff readings.

The city of Sacramento is not affected by these deliveries because it holds its own water rights in the American and Sacramento rivers. Outlying suburban communities get water from Folsom Reservoir via the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, which has already announced 100 percent deliveries to these areas.

We’ll fight dam surcharge – Yreka, CA – Siskiyou Daily News

Uncategorized

It is illegal to assess a surcharge for REMOVAL of a dam, which has nothing to do with producing power. Quite the contrary, removal of a power-producing dam which has been working for over 75 years will require even more expense to REPLACE the power which has been effectively pollution-free power for the majority of a century.

April 1st Water Rally PROTEST is growing

POW, Scott Valley events, Water rights

Thanks to the huge response from TEA Party groups and others concerned about Water Rights, the Water Rally has been expanded.

The Klamath Bucket Brigade will show up with its GIANT 15-foot tall bucket that is a symbol of the Bucket Brigade, which defied the federal Bureau of Reclamation shut-off of water to the 1,400 Klamath Project farmers on May 7, 2001 in Klamath Falls.

Groups from Klamath Falls to Redding and Red Bluff are planning on participating.

Day:  Friday, April 1

Where:  Meet at Mean Gene’s Market at 6737 North Highway 3 also called State Route 3

——- Food and fuel is available at Mean Genes

——- Bring a lunch, if you would like to or pick up munchies at Genes.

When:  10:30 a.m.

Directions —  These will be given to the Wild Rose Buffalo Ranch in Quartz Valley, where owner Mark Baird will legally turn on his irrigation water.

THIS  IS  A PEACEFUL  PROTEST.

The Bairds hold a Water Right established  back in the 1850s.  The Bairds and Scott Valley POW does not believe there is a “new” regulation that demands a Permit to open his headgate and use his legal property right of water.

Mark will turn on his headgate around 11 a.m.

Like-minded folks who want to join in this PROTEST are invited.  –– Scott Valley POW President Liz Bowen

65 percent of water is not enough. But this is new — Senator Diane Feinstein supporting agriculture. Surprising!

California water

Under Pressure from Feinstein, Feds Open Tap for Farmers

Additional water allocation will help with crops but still not enough, growers say

By John Upton on March 29, 2011 – 5:07 p.m. PDT

Source: The Bay Citizen

Following sharp criticism by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, federal officials announced they would increase the amount of water available to farmers this year from the Sacramento – San Joaquin River Delta.

Last week, Feinstein described the plan to provide farmers with just 55 percent of their normal allocation as “shocking.” The government announced Monday that it would increase the farmers’ allocation to 65 percent.

The farmers, who also receive water from the state and other sources, will be able to increase the amount of crops that they grow this year because of the adjustment.

The snowpack in Northern California contains 72 percent more water than average for this time of year, which means an abundance of water will flow through the delta this year following years of drought.

While most towns and companies that rely on the federal water will receive their full allocation this year, the San Joaquin Valley farmers will endure a shortage due to pumping restrictions that aim to protect endangered delta smelt and salmon.

Finally, California Finds a Surplus: 50 Feet of Snow

California water
By JESSE McKINLEY
Published: March 29, 2011

New York Times – Environmental section

SAN FRANCISCO — Sure, fine, California may have its problems right now. There is the budget, yes, what with that pesky $26.5 billion deficit, and the legislative stalemate with its, you know, stalemate-ness. Unemployment is still high, and so is anxiety, about everything from housing prices to radioactive clouds drifting over from Japan.

But California has at least one thing going for it at the moment: Mother Nature. This winter, the state, which had been stuck in a prolonged drought, was positively walloped by Pacific storms, bringing more than 50 feet of snow to some ski spots in the Sierra Nevada and even a flurry or two to San Francisco.

And so it is that on Wednesday, Gov. Jerry Brown is expected to lift a 2009 emergency drought proclamation issued by his predecessor, Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger, symbolically ending the state’s worst dry spell since the late 1980s and early ’90s.

The announcement comes less than a week after the California Department of Water Resources found that the snowpack level was at about 159 percent of normal, its highest since 1995. That figure stands in stark contrast to the arid days of 2007, when the state had about 39 percent of its average snowpack. Thus began a three-year drought that cost farmers hundreds of millions of dollars as irrigation water became scarce and exacerbated the already soaring unemployment rate in many agricultural areas.

Response from California Farm Water Coalition …Governor Jerry Brown is expected today to declare an end to the drought declaration by former Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger.  While it is good news, it is important to remember that this water won’t last forever.  Currently the State’s reservoirs are at 85% capacity and pumps have been turned off because there is nowhere to store additional supplies.

That means if California turns dry again next year, today’s abundance is lost. California is in need of more reservoirs for water storage. Almost 300 thousand acre-feet per day is being released to the Pacific Ocean, enough to serve the domestic needs of 1 to 2 million Californians for an entire year.  This need for increased storage emphasizes the need for an improved conveyance system that will deliver the water to all water users in our state.

This year’s abundant water supply gives us hope.  New storage and improved conveyance will give us the assurance that adequate water should be available when the state faces another dry year in the future.

PNP comment: We agree with the above Coalition’s statements.
