Re "Water waster applies to all": I agree, especially Southern California and the Northern California lakes. It would be funny going after water wasters if it wasn't so outrageously hypocritical.

Three of our major water storage lakes release two to three times the water they are taking in. This is all being done in the name of fish, the delta and water flow to Southern California. Anyone who has lived in California long enough remembers when the rivers were just creeks this time of year before the dams were built and the fish and delta did just fine.

We are now going to fine Sacramento people while the rivers flow full. Follow the money.
