California’s New Delta Water Rules Don’t End Conflict With Washington

"When the Trump administration rolled back endangered species protections in the Bay Area delta that serves as the hub of California’s water-supply system, the state decided to go its own way.

It sued the federal government and also set about drafting its own delta rules under the California Endangered Species Act.

The new rules, released Tuesday, were immediately greeted by threats of lawsuits and — depending on who was talking — complaints that the regulations were too weak or too strong."
