California's largest water delivery system...will have to be shut down in 60 days, unless water officials comply with endangered species laws.
That ruling was given last Friday from a state judge in Oakland, and stemmed from a lawsuit filed by a sport-fishing group.
Am I being too optimistic to think it won't come down to shutting the water off?
Wasco grower Jim Crettol said if enforced, the judges order to shut down state water project pumps would have a ripple effect on the farm.
"He is jeopardizing cities and farms from San Francisco to San Diego," said Crettol....
If shut down, it would be crippling to half of the state, which is why I don't think it would be allowed to happen.
