S.F. v California
The City that never gave a damn about the San Joaquin Valley being sucked dry all of a sudden is concerned with the state's plan to take their water.
Oct 16, 2018
We have to admit some feeling of satisfaction over San Francisco's water officials trying to justify their opposition to the State Water Resources Control Board's (SWRCB) plan to send more water down the rivers and out to sea instead of allowing it to be used by humans in San Francisco. The City that never gave a damn about the San Joaquin Valley being sucked dry all of a sudden is concerned with the state's plan to take their water.
The article below is written as if San Francisco is at war with the people of California because they are fighting the Water Board's decision. The article is written from the point of view that the Board's decisions are what Californians really want. We disagree. The unelected water bureaucrats on the State Water Resources Control Board are totally out of touch with most Californians, and most certainly out of touch with farmers in Central California.
This latest proposal by the Water Board has only awakened San Franciscans to the water war they've been watching but not really fighting because they didn't realize the fight would ever come to them. It wasn't their water so they didn't care. They could afford to be environmentalists with someone else's water. Now they are seeing there are real consequences to the Board's actions and their reaction doesn't put them at odds with the people of California, but in solidarity with the people. It's time for San Francisco, Los Angeles and the Central Valley to put a stop to this runaway board.
