Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) today released a statement on the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation’s decision to increase the federal water allocation for South-of-Delta users from 65 percent of contracted levels to 75 percent.

          Following is Senator Feinstein’s statement:

“I am pleased to learn that the allotment has been adjusted to 75 percent. I understand that further adjustments are possible as well, based on snowpack data that is now being analyzed. I will continue to follow this situation closely. California has a bumper crop of water and most farms will receive 100 percent of their allotment. South-of-Delta farms should receive a high allotment just based on available water.”
