$7.5 billion dollars in state funds to expand water storage capacity

Post by WB Staff »

"In 2014, California voters passed a proposition using $7.5 billion dollars in state funds to expand water storage capacity....The main focus on their minds is the failure to expand Shasta Dam."
Jon Rosenfield, Science Director at San Francisco Baykeeper says raising Shasta Dam will have negative impacts, such as not enough water in reserve from excess water deliveries, and it could inundate McCloud River and flood holy sites of the Winnemem Wintu Tribe.

Since Moonbeam was in charge when this was passed in 2014 I don't expect anything to happen to water storage in this state in my lifetime. They will use the money for what our state government wants to push not what was voted for. The voters put in a Desalination plant in Santa Barbara which was promptly taken apart and sold to the Saudis. It was voted on a second time with a no selling it clause but truly I cannot say if they rebuilt it or not again. It just shows you what goes on in politics in this state. I believe we have voted away daylight savings time 3 times but it's still here. Hows that mag lev train to nowhere working out???....Calif. is the boondoggle state...........

When did we vote on native Indian rites over ride the need of today’s population?
Fire fights can not enter national forest land of any land that had indigenous tribes without s tribal guide. The tribal guide designate where the fire fighter may go and not allowed to cross trails once used by ancient tribes. Fire fights are not allowed to use any fuel powered equipment around lake Shasta watershed, force to use mules or on foot for transport.
Water doesn’t belong to the tribes and all though history tribal burial sites were moved when lakes flooded those areas.
I appreciate trying to accommodate tribal rights but water is everyone’s life line.
