FRESNO, Calif. (AP) - A court has temporarily blocked the Trump administration’s efforts to pump more water to the agricultural Central Valley, which critics say would threaten endangered species and salmon runs.

A federal judge in Fresno issued a preliminary injunction Tuesday in two lawsuits brought against the administration by California and environmental groups.

The order bars the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation from expanding the amount of water it pumps from the San Joaquin Delta through the federal Central Valley Project.

The valley is the heartland for the state’s $50 billion agricultural industry. The injunction lasts until May 31.
