You can give money till the cows come home, but the ESA and courts come out on top.
Yes, this is the issue. W/o A Canal water, Tule Lake Sump A won't be able to fill. And how much longer will Ady Canal be open? The excess run-off is nice but it won't last long and it won't plant many acres of crops.We can only keep our fingers crossed at this point that when and if the A Canal is opened it will make its way to Tule. I'm skeptical that will even happen as the Feds (BOR) and tribes have set a new lake level elevation of 4142.4 before any water will be considered for release. I cant remeber the last time I have seen Upper Klamath lake this full.
