On July 20, 2011, the California Dept. of Fish and Game announced that “Young Delta smelt abundance this year roughly doubled when compared to last year”.
This is certainly encouraging news, and gives hope to the continued efforts of Californians committed to the co-existence of the people of California (and the food they eat, clothes they wear, jobs they do, etc.) who strive to be productive and their continued enjoyment of the beauty of our natural resources.
This announcement certainly validates the decision to allow continued water exports to support the needs of California’s cities and agriculture.
