California Govt Orders Farmers to Stop Taking Water for Agriculture

The government has told farmers and ranchers in Northern California to stop diverting water from a region dedicated to protecting fish.

The State Water Resources Control Board sent a draft cease-and-desist order to the Shasta Water Association, ordering farmers to discontinue collecting water from the Shasta River watershed, the Los Angeles Times reported.

The group, which holds 80 members, is an irrigation organization exempt from taxes.

The Shasta Water Association has twenty days to ask for a hearing, or the order will be complete, meaning the group has to pay fines of up to $10,000 per day, according to the state water agency.

State water board information officer, Ailene Voisin, said the water diversions were still happening as of Tuesday of this week.

Since 2021, the state agency has decreased water use in the specific watershed to allow water to keep pouring into the Shasta River – a tributary of the Klamath River.

Federally protected

It is also a federally protected area for specific vulnerable species of salmon.

The region also suffered from recent events as salmon, and other fish died in the Klamath river.

Scientists say the mass fish deaths were due to a flash flood that carried waste from a wildfire and affected the oxygen quality of the water, according to Craig Tucker, a consultant on natural resources for the Karuk Tribe, per the outlet.

Tucker also notes that around 50,000 to 100,000 suckerfish are thought to have died, along with salmon and other fish.

According to the state water agency, the Shasta River fell to around half the minimum emergency flow necessary for the fish.

That number went from 50 cubic feet per second to 14 cubic feet per second as of Tuesday.

Tucker said farmers and ranchers were taking water from the river or diverting water on or near their property for agricultural fields and pastures.

But the tribal groups haven’t gone onto their land to look into this claim.

Drought

The agricultural output has been severely impacted by the recent drought.

“In the San Joaquin, we anticipate that the curtailments will go down as far as 1900 in terms of priority, with some sub-watersheds in the 1910s to 1920s,” Ekdahl said Tuesday during a state water board meeting.

“In the Sacramento watershed, we actually don’t anticipate significant curtailments at this time,” with the exception of some smaller tributaries”

In a letter to the water board – dated August 17, the agricultural group said it thought the exemptions permitted it to cut down its diversion of water by just 15%, stating it would begin using water for animals when the weather reaches high temperatures and to suppress fires.

“The curtailment has dried the Shasta Valley to the point of endangerment to health and life of the public and residents who live here, with apparent disregard to the livestock and pet health within this watershed,” the letter said.

When stratospheric injection puts way too many particles in the air, then moisture gets spread out too thinly condense into rain. It tries to condense on too many particles at the same time. It gets spread out too thinly that way. The water stays in the sky, accumulating there. Unless stratospheric injection keeps ramping up, forever holding more and more water in the sky, eventually the moisture will reach equilibrium with the number of particles and will start raining, hard, a lot. A little bit of rain will empty the air of some of the particles, leading to more and bigger raindrops as there are fewer condensation nuclei then, leading to self reinforcing deluges.
The biggest culprit of global greenhouse effects is not the miniscule percentage of Co2, and not even methane. It is water vapor held in the sky by chemtrailing the world.
Stratospheric Injection can be stopped in certain places now, and far enough downwind there will be catastrophic floods. The drought and the floods are man made and chemtrail caused.

Dan Bongino Drops Bombshell with Stunning Revelation on Secret Service Failures Surrounding Tump Shooting Former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino made a stunning revelation about security failures which led to former president Donald Trump coming within inches of being assassinated. During an appearance on Donald Trump Jr.'s podcast "Triggered," Bongino revealed that the rooftop from which the failed Trump assassin Thomas Matthew Crooks fired shots, was supposed to be covered by law enforcement personnel. Bongino revealed he was told this by an "unimpeachable source" who was knowledgeable about the situation. "That post, according to my source, that roof was supposed to be a police post. It was supposed to be someone there," he said. "They're now making up excuses, saying the pitch of the roof… my source says to me, no one knows why the post didn't show up," Bongino revealed. He added that Secret Service Director Kim Cheatle has been instructed by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to "keep her mouth shut if she wants to remain in her post. Cheatle has refused to resign from her post following the aftermath of the assassination attempt. The Secret Service identified a high-profile security vulnerability in the building but failed to protect the rooftop. Moreover, security forces did not take notice of Crooks roughly 30 minutes before the shooting. One law enforcement asset even managed to snap a photo of the suspect, though he was not confronted. Cheatle attempted to explain why the rooftop wasn't covered. "That building in particular has a sloped roof at its highest point. And so, you know, there's a safety factor that would be considered there that we wouldn't want to put somebody up on a sloped roof," the Secret Service director said in a statement to ABC News. "And so, you know, the decision was made to secure the building, from inside." "They're not putting that out there. But if you get those site post logs and those police instructions and it was a post on there and they didn't show up and no one checked, someone could have got your dad killed," Bongino said. "Within millimeters." Bongino said he would be revealing more details on his podcast. ""You're telling me the best technology you have was deployed and you missed a shooter 130 yards? Say it was 200 yards," Bongino told Fox News. The Secret Service CS team, Pete, the counter-sniper team? And I'm not sure those two guys are Secret Service. We have to remember that we don't always, when we go to New York sometimes with high-level protectees we'll use NYPD ESU counter-sniper. So I'm not really sure." "Either way, they'd still be briefed in. The question we have to ask is, if that's the best technology we have, and we had a CS team up there with a shooter that, you know, we're trained out to a thousand yards in the Secret Service with the counter-sniper team. How did they miss someone at most, you know, one-fifth of the way there? It doesn't make any sense."
