The Sonoma County Water Agency
(SCWA) has repeatedly petitioned the State for permission
to reduce the amount of water in the Russian River. The
reason for this, claim SCWA officials, is
protect salmon. Got that? Fish need less water.
River advocates point out that
low flows in the Russian would mean higher temperatures
and a climate inimical to fish.
