Water Board Proposes to Release More Water into San Joaquin River

The State Water Resource Control Board’s proposal to send more water down the San Joaquin River to protect fish and wildlife will be on the agenda Wednesday, May 1, in Modesto when the Middle San Joaquin Watershed Stakeholder group meets.

State Water Board staff will describe the Water Board’s Bay-Delta planning process and the recent proposal to modify San Joaquin River flow objectives to protect fish and wildlife. The Bay-Delta Water Quality Control Plan, in its draft form, would require regional irrigation districts to leave 35% of mountain runoff in the Merced, Tuolumne and Stanislaus Rivers from February to June.

The presentation will include a description of the process and information the Water Board will use to inform its decisions. The Water Board is interested in speaking with people in the region who have an interest in, and could be affected by, the Water Board’s future actions regarding the flow proposal. The presentation will be by Les Grober, assistant deputy director, Hearings and Special Programs Branch, Division of Water Rights, State Water Resources Control Board.

The meeting is scheduled for 3 to 5 p.m. at the Stanislaus County Agricultural Center, Rooms D & E, 3800 Cornucopia Way, Modesto. The Middle San Joaquin River Watershed includes the Lower Merced, Lower Tuolumne, Lower Stanislaus and the San Joaquin River from the Merced River to the Stanislaus River. For more information, contact Chester Anderson at (209) 581-7558.
