Russian Riverkeepers Alert: SCWA seeks river flow reduction to 50 cfs

The Sonoma County Water Agency wants to reduce the flow to 50 cubic feet per second. Maybe stop  watering the grape vines?

Thanks to Riverkeeper for publishing this ….

Today, Sonoma Water announced that it is seeking to reduce river flow to 50 cfs above Healdsburg and 60 cfs in the lower river. If river flow is cut that deeply, hot summer weather will likely trigger harmful algae blooms and recreation will come to a halt. Look for a message from us next week about how you can help tell the State Water Resources Control Board to balance flow cuts with mandatory water conservation.
