The ongoing severe drought in California underscores the need to invest in innovative, long-term solutions to California’s water future. We need to find the right balance of investment to facilitate sustainable water management in California.
During drought times we need to find collaborative solutions that work for people and fish. Trout, steelhead and salmon are important indicators of watershed health and are important drivers of many rural and coastal economies. Work done to improve the status of these species directly benefits safe drinking water supplies, water quality, and the economic health of all Californians.
CalTrout supports the water bond proposal AB1471/SB866 currently being voted on in the legislature.
