San Mateo County gets its water from the Tuolumne, which once hosted a robust salmon fishery. But with most of the river flows diverted to the San Joaquin Valley, salmon and other fish numbers have plummeted, along
with permits to fish for them.

The State Water Resources Control Board will decide whether to guarantee adequate river flows to help the salmon and others depending on the river. Drekmeier maintains that most of the river water should flow through the
delta for a healthy estuary.

The CCWD—covering HMB and EG—now gets much of its domestic water from the abused Tuolumne River. For water users in the CCWD, this could be an eye-opener, exposing their responsibility for negative impacts on natural resources and the natural environment far from the coastside—and what can be done to improve the situation.
