DWR is now strongly recommending conservation! This is the same DWR that had the spillway dumping water for over 3 weeks during the summer. This is the same DWR that lowered the lake a couple of months ago to make repairs on an access road that they should have made last year. NOW they get concerned? A little late for that!

Now DWR is recommendung conservation! This is the same DWR that had the spillway running hard for over 3 weeks in the middle of last summer. The same DWR that lowered the lake a few months ago to "make repairs" to one of their access roads. I guess they should be forgiven though, given the fact that they have never been known for making good decisions!

Uh oh, time for the Dept of Water resources to throw someone under the bus... Hmmm, I got it! Let's blame it on the gold miners, again! Just like a few years ago when they stupidly allowed too much water out of the reservoirs for the farmers which ended up decimating the salmon populations by dropping water levels in the salmon spawning zones right in the middle of the spawning season. Then they tried to blame it on dredgers... What a farce... Good thing we have all this government oversight!
