Spotlight on Conservation

It's starting to look more and more certain that we're going to have good salmon fishing this year. We now know how many salmon retuned to the Central Valley last year and scientists have used those numbers to forecast how many salmon will greet the fleet when the season opens this year. Unofficial reports say we should anticipate just under 400,000 adult Sacramento Valley salmon in the ocean now, and this is probably conservative.

Following the news that the Delta Conveyance Design and Construction Authority (DCA) had selected the Jacobs company to be the engineering design manager for the Delta Tunnels, the DCA awarded Fugro a contract for a major geotechnical investigation to support the California WaterFix project. The DCA has awarded the geotechnical investigation to Fugro and selected Jacobs as engineering design manager even though the State Water Resources Control Board has not yet approved the petitions by the Department of Water of Resources and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation to change the point of diversion, a requirement for the project to be constructed.
