Washington—Senator Feinstein (D-Calif.) released the following statement in support of the voluntary settlement agreements as an alternative to the State Water Resources Control Board’s proposed Water Quality Control Plan update:

“The voluntary settlement agreements have real promise to restore our depleted salmon runs without threatening California’s water supply – a remarkable feat in the context of our perpetual water wars.

“I hope the State Water Resources Control Board will work with the interested parties to revise and include these voluntary settlements in the updated Water Quality Control Plan.”
