Opposition to Increasing Flows on the Merced, Tuolumne, and Stanislaus Rivers

I oppose the State Water Resources Control Board’s proposal to increase flows on the Merced, Tuolumne and Stanislaus Rivers, as such an increase will have potentially irreversible negative effects on surface water availability, groundwater sustainability, water quality, jobs, labor income, tax base and the greater socioeconomic backbone of these regions. This proposal has the potential to devastate families, decimate local communities and diminish the varied and vibrant culture that is unique to these areas. Further, I respectfully ask the State Water Resources Control Board staff and board members to give greater consideration to the benefit of non-flow measures before implementing a proposal that has the potential to devastate an entire region of California.
