Coalition response…Too many regulations without scientific research supporting their ability to meet the intended goal are issued to control water in an attempt to benefit fish. Water board officials have been asked to provide the documentation that proves fish will benefit by increasing the natural flows in the Toulumne, Stanislaus and Merced rivers. Unfortunately, that documentation has not been forthcoming. Impacting the lives of thousands of people by eliminating their jobs and taking millions of dollars away from local economies for an exercise that might help fish is not an action that should be taken.
