The State Water Resources Control Board is required by law to regularly review its conservation and water quality plan for the San Francisco Bay/Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. To help increase the salmonid populations, the State has proposed large increases to water releases on the Tuolomne River, a plan that could dramatically reduce water reservoir levels for the San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC).
The SFPUC has developed an alternative to the State’s Bay-Delta Plan that will have better outcomes for both the Tuolumne River fish and our residents. This is a science-based approach that included more than 200 Tuolumne-specific studies to find the best ways to balance a healthy ecosystem with a reliable water supply.
