The California Bureau of Reclamations has released more than 70,000 acre feet of water from dams on the American and Stanislaus rivers. The Placer County water Agency or PCWA says it is very concerned about what the state’s plan is for this summer and next year if the drought persists. Congressman Tom McClintock spoke on the House Floor Thursday demanding some reason for the release.
The Bureau released the water in accordance with the endangered species act. Congressman Mcclintock takes offense at what he sees as fish coming before people.
The congressman calls the release an outrage and wants more investigation.
