Statement by the California Farm Water Coalition on the publication of farm water success stories showing how agricultural water stewardship practices are at work on-the-ground, at the farm and irrigation-district level.

“The Pacific Institute has come a long way toward recognizing the achievements by farmers and water managers instead of unfairly criticizing them for wasting water, as they did in many of their previous reports. These stories aren’t new and are common on farms throughout California.  The Pacific Institute message seems to be changing from one that says farmers can save millions of acre-feet of water to one that says farmers are doing good job managing scarce water resources, which we have asserted for more than 20 years.”
