From the Fresno Bee Newsroom Blog, in a post by Mark Grossi:
“Starting Tuesday, you’ll see San Joaquin River water pouring faster out of Friant Dam. It’s part of the experimental flows in the river restoration project. …
“The restoration project, which began four years ago, is supposed to reconnect the dried parts of the river with the Pacific Ocean. One goal is to bring back runs of salmon that died off decades ago.”
Aquafornia’s Water Word(s) of the Week from sister site Aquapedia was recently San Joaquin River and San Joaquin River Restoration Program, which is also the focus of a Water Education Foundation tour Nov. 7-8. Ten seats remain; sign up now.
