Wow, what can I say...You go CSPA!

To all who is reading this thread this is huge. If you agree that the exports are killing the Delta, if you agree that the water delivered to irrigate toxic ground is insane, If you agree that selling water at subsidized rates to recharge Kern County water banks, then reselling the water back to the state at huge profits is criminal, If you get angry when our reservoirs are dry and the S Cal reservoirs are full then now is the time to put your money where it can do the most good.

CSPA needs support to continue these fights and needs your membership NOW. For as little as $30 you can be a member. Without support and membership they can't continue to champion our causes. www.calsport.org

WOW!, that's the kick in the nuts that DWR both needs and deserves. The tack looks strong basing some of the arguments on constitutional grounds.  Let's hope this one wakes somebody up in the water stealing crowd.  Good stuff and thanks for posting it, Dan.

This is totally appropriate and necessary. This must take money. Tell us again how we can donate to this lawsuit. I read on the board about all the guys enjoying the fishing in the delta. Now is the time for us to step to the plate. We must pay now or not play later. We all know Westlands has plenty of money.
