Comments / Objections / Protests Regarding January 23, 2015 Temporary Urgency Change Petition and Petitions for Reconsideration of Order Approving Temporary Urgency Change for the Central Valley and State Water Projects

The State Water Resources Control Board has received numerous emails from the public regarding the actions taken on the Temporary Urgency Change Petitions submitted by the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation and the California Department of Water Resources in response to the drought. The text of the message reads as follows:

Subject:  Restore flows to San Francisco Bay to prevent species extinctions

“Dear State Water Resources Control Board members,
I am writing to urge you to reverse your decision to suspend the March requirements for inflows to San Francisco Bay, and to weaken limits on exports. The required flows are critical to the continued existence of Delta smelt, winter-run Chinook salmon and other species and must be provided for the rest of March and on through the ecologically important spring period. Please reject any request to suspend the flow requirements and export limits for April and May 2015, and give the endangered species of the Bay-Delta estuary their last, best chance for survival.”
