Dam on the upper San Jaoquin

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

The other funds (besides the $2.7 billion for water storage) will help with water conservation, groundwater monitoring, fixing leaky pipelines, and other water projects that will help conserve or clean up existing supplies.

This is how I see it as well. I also agree with the comments about water scarcity (no new water, but there is still a small about that has yet to be developed), and the need for integrated solutions. Development (facilitation, mostly) of integrated regional water solutions has been my primary professional focus for going on 10 years now. It's been said by my colleagues that my job title should be "cat herder."

Really not unlike my function, at times, on these forums. ;)
