Thursday, August 24, 2023 – Tribes and water management in California

Tribes in northern California say waterways are increasingly compromised because of the state’s outmoded water management methods. They are joining environmental groups who say the state’s water management authority is appeasing large corporate interests over ecosystems and the people who utilize the water. It’s another fight over water in the west in which tribes say they are left out of the discussion, at the expense of tribal citizens and the environment.
