Keeping the issue in the forefront was the focus of a water forum in the Central Valley. AgNet West’s Taylor Hillman has the story.
The Fresno Grizzlies Farm Grown program brought a water forum to the Central Valley last week. Several water district directors and politicians addressed the crowd, including Congressman David Valadao who said keeping the conversation going on the issue is key. Some might say they are tired of talking about the problem and want to see some action instead, but Valadao said that is not the case with this issue that affects everyone.
Valadao added they can’t control mother nature but with wells starting to run dry more frequently around the state, putting ourselves in a good position to take advantage of fall rains is a must.
