Department of Water Resources announcement. Tighter water restrictions, government’s drought to continue.

The following release (below photo) was issued by the bureaucrats who have decided to use the government to bankrupt family farms and raise water rates across the state under the fraudulent excuse of saving the fish.    

These very low estimates of future water supplies reflect the ongoing and increasing impact of the federal restrictions on pumping water through the Delta.  Last year at this time DWR’s initial allocation was 15 percent.  This year, the state and federal reservoirs are higher than they were last year and Northern California has received 90 percent of its normal precipitation, yet DWR’s allocation is only five percent.  The reason for this reduction has a lot to do with the limitations on moving water and the fact that the additional restrictions that were imposed on behalf of the salmon (not an endangered species) are taking full effect for the first time this year.  

So the water is cut off for a fish we serve in every restaurant in the country; a fish that is farmed.  This is outright tyranny. 

The government is continuing to use its authority to intentionally depress real estate values, raise water rates, and raise electric rates across the state.  They will continue to reduce supplies of basic necessities to wipe out generations of wealth.  All Californians will be effected.  

It is time to investigate the corruption in our government agencies starting with DWR Director Lester A. Snow.  See his quote below where he actually blames a non-existent drought for the complete mismanagement of our water systems by the Schwarzenegger Administration.  It is time to get rid of the negligent bureaucrats who have embraced Marxism, the global warming fraud, and the climate change hoax.  They are either insensitive or ignorant of the financial impacts of this announcement.

Sacramento, Calif. December 1, 2009 – The Department of Water Resources (DWR) today announced an initial allocation of five percent of total contracted water deliveries to the State Water Project (SWP) contractors for 2010. Five percent is the lowest initial allocation percentage since the SWP began delivering water in 1967. 

“The Legislature took a major step forward earlier this month to address the state’s water needs by heeding Governor Schwarzenegger’s call and passing the most comprehensive water package in California history,” said DWR Director Lester A. Snow. “Nevertheless, on the heels of a three-year drought, we need to prepare now so that we have adequate water supplies for homes, farms and businesses.” 

The previous low for an initial allocation as a percentage of SWP contractors’ requests was 10 percent in 1993, but that number was increased to 100 percent during the year as supply conditions improved. The initial figure for 2009 of 15 percent was increased to a final allocation of 40 percent in May. 

The historical average of final SWP allocations as a percentage of initial requests over the past 10 years has been 68 percent. 

The initial allocation is a very conservative estimate of what DWR expects it can deliver as a percentage of SWP contractors’ initial requests for contracted water deliveries for a calendar year. 

This year, the contractors have requested 100 percent of the maximum contractual amount allowed — 4,171,996 acre-feet. While the initial 2010 allocation is only five percent of that amount, actual deliveries are expected to increase during the year once actual hydrologic and water supply conditions are known. SWP contractors provide water to more than 25 million California residents and more than 750,000 acres of farmland. 

The initial allocation figure reflects the low carryover storage levels in the state’s major reservoirs, ongoing drought conditions and federally mandated environmental restrictions on water deliveries from the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta to protect endangered fish species in the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta. 

The Department of Fish and Game’s most recent survey indexes indicate that all four Delta pelagic fish species (Delta smelt, Longfin smelt, Striped bass and Threadfin shad) are at their lowest-ever population levels. 

DWR will continue to monitor water supply conditions and drought impacts to identify any necessary supplemental response actions this year and will move aggressively to plan for a potentially dry 2010 in coordination with other state, federal and local agencies and the water community. 

The announcement is part of the Department’s effort to implement Gov. Schwarzenegger’s Drought Executive Order (S-06-08) directing DWR to help local water districts and agencies proactively address these conditions.

This is what the government did to our farmland.  The so called promise of GREEN jobs is not green at all.  It has made our farmers bankrupt and turned valuable cropland into barren desert.  Imagine what they would do to our health care system.

Government land reclamation.  Deny access to water until the farm goes bankrupt.  Then turn it into an environmental preserve and return it to it’s so called natural state. 

We the people will not put up with this nonsense anymore.  It is time to investigate the corruption in the environmental groups who are working to undermine our Constitution.

Sacramento, the shot heard round the world.

The start of a new revolution.

The start of a new revolution.

At the start of the first American Revolution the first shots were fired at the Old North Bridge in Concord, Massachusetts  in 1775.  This  event was memorialized as the shot heard round the world in the first stanza of Ralph Waldo Emerson’s poem “The Concord Hymn.”

“By the rude bridge that arched the flood,
Their flag to April’s breeze unfurled;
Here once the embattled farmers stood,
And fired the shot heard ’round the world.”

On August 28th, 2009 the farmers, truckers, loggers, and the people of California are now fighting for their lives against the big government oppression that is bankrupting them and seizing their land and assets.  This time though their shots are not from the barrels of muskets, but from their words and signs as the next American Revolution begins

First order of business was to sing the pledge and check the sound system.

At no time was there any indication that anyone other than hard working Americans from all parties were in attendence.  Each one with a message for freedom.  

With help from the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association the stage was set for dozens of speakers who oppose the eco-tyranny being waged by the politicians of this state.  One main theme was that cutting off water supplies is an act of war by the government against its own people.

Second order of business, thanking Americas veterans.

Ben Bergquam lead the progression of tractors with a casket to illustrate how the government is killing the economy.  It was very clear that this is a peaceful revolution to preserve the rights of we the people.

Invoking the memory of founding father Patrick Henry, Americans expressed their opposition to the extreme environmental policies of the State and Federal Governments.  Piedad Ayala spoke with eloquence for the people of the Central Valley who have lost their jobs due to nonsense environemntal rulings. 

Once again We the People must stand together and oppose the tyranny and oppression of those in our own government who are working with foreign interests to undermine our Constitution and take away our freedoms. 

It is time to stop the nonsense of breaking water contracts under the judgements from the Endangered Species Act.  The people’s rights come first.   

Mankind turns the environment green.  It is corrupt politicians who make it barren.  Shame on you Nancy Pelosi.  This is what you did.

 

This environment would be green with a little water.

This environment would be green with a little water.

At noon truckers and loggers from Northern California surrounded the Capitol with 300 vehicles as they circled it all afternoon to bring down the walls of power that are oppressing the people.

Congressman Devin Nunes spoke about the reality of today’s Environmentalists.

Mason Weaver motivated the crowd of American Patriots.

The message to the politicians was very clear.  The people no longer believe in the deceptions of environmental extremism.  We want our jobs back.  We want our water back.  We want our land back.  We want our country back.  This is the angry mob that the Democrats and the media have warned you about. 

They will be appearing across the country for the next two weeks.

Tomorrow:  More from Sacramento.
