Well say good bye to our Lakes. Major impact to our tourism without full Lakes to draw them in. I wonder if we will see the lower bridge again.
Who is the seller who is the buyer ? Who makes sure the process is on the up and up ? What is the punishment for corruption ? You know some one will
take advantage of this and line their own pockets . YES streamline the
process but stiffen the penalties for white caller theft of public money !

Well since New Melones staff did not open the lakeside campgrounds this spring when the water level was visible now they can open the gates this summer so campers can experience the Grand Canyon type views.
he issued an Executive Order calling for the streamlining of the approval process for water transfers in the state.
It actually just let's him steal our water without our consent or any paperwork.
Where do you think the water will come from? HERE!
Whils't they enjoy their stolen water and pay nomimal fees in the valley, WE pay higher and higher fees for the dribble they GENEROUSLY allow us to keep.
Makes me want to pee in the river, and take a nice fat **MP.
How about the rest of you?
"Great the state government is taking over":-(:-(:-(
Given the Delta plan, I don't trust this guy on water issues.
Agree drvmustangs 100% The water buyers are those in Southern California. We should split the state in half when we had the chance to but noooooooo!!!! Now look what we have.
dont be surprised to see a water use tax or a water use "fee"
I think we should keep the water in the mountains and tell the flatlanders to learn to conserve water.
I find it funny that the "conserve water" sign go up around Tuolumne county, and when you go to the bay area or other regions that depend on our water they let it flow with zero concerns about drought or conservation.
So, it says, in hopes to help the agriculture industry (your food supply) you are going to complain about the loss in tourism and recreational activities at the lakes. Really? I think you need food more than a trip to the lake, unless you are fishing, then you have a right to complain.
control the water, control the food, control the guns. Now enslave the people....Brown is just like Ovomit on a state scale...
No. the water comes from here....they should pay for it.
I don't mind paying for food, and they shouldn't mind paying for OUR water.
Rev - the Bay Area doesn't use the same water supply we do.Most of our water comes from Pinecrest. The Bay Area gets its water primarily from Hetch Hetchy.
jrenee They maybe saying for agriculture. The fact is that they are more concerned about keeping the lawns green. Go down I5 and see the dust bowl that has been created down by Fresno. The lakes up here have continued to supply over the years without the valley conserving. Without lakes to pull water from with Helicopters. The fires created usually by Valley people are going to be HORRIFYING. REV has it right.
I have been a Tuolumne County resident my whole life until this last year, I moved to the valley, I actually do know what water is like there. Can't drink it without filtering, cockroaches come out of the canals every night. Can't water lawns or your own fruit trees on certain days. They do have the valley residents conserve, the signs are not posted like they do in Tuolumne County, but if you every listen to Kat County 103 or KHOP 95.1 you will hear the advertisements asking residents to only water their lawns certain days and to not do it between certain times and it is included in every bill you receive. I NOW KNOW both sides of being in the area where the water comes from and somewhere where it goes. I believe I pay more for my water service in the valley too.
It's about time that we all grow up and start looking at both sides of things before making assumptions. The water that the valley gets from Tuolumne County is not abused like everyone thinks.
