Civil Liberties Monitoring Project
The CIVIL LIBERTIES HOUR, JUNE 5, 1ST WEDNESDAY OF EACH MONTH, KMUD RADIO

EXPANDING ENFORCEMENT OF STATE WATER DIVERSION LAWS


On JUNE 5, 2013, the CIVIL LIBERTIES HOUR on KMUD Redwood Community Radio looked at current California water regulation and enforcement. Bonnie Blackberry hosted the show and welcomed guests: Fish and Wildlife (F&W) Warden Shane Embry and citizen activist Tom Grover in the studio, and F&W Biologist and Environmental Scientist Jane Arnold by telephone.


Blackberry introduced the subject of water regulations by reading the following pertinent details from a copy of a certified letter a local landowner had recently received from the CA Water Board: "The State Water Resources Control Board Division of Water Rights was notified by the Department of Fish and Wildlife of potential CA Water Code violations for failure to file a Statement of Water Diversion and Use, and a potential unauthorized diversion of water on your property located at . . . And the Division was also notified by the Department of Fish & Wildlife of an alleged fish-kill that occurred in October of 2012 as a result of low-flow conditions in China Creek. . .
