Letters: Trump’s pumping plan will kill California’s salmon runs

Re “As fish disappear, Trump administration seeks to pump more California water south” (sacbee.com, Jan. 2): Central Valley salmon runs will be further harmed if Trump administration plans aren’t stopped to divert more water from the Delta to mega growers in the western San Joaquin Valley. We're facing near record low numbers of salmon and other species. California needs to step up and protect our natural resources from President Donald Trump and his relatively small base of supporters who grow almonds and pistachios for export. Salmon fishing families look to Gov. Jerry Brown and the State Water Board to stop this seizure of northern California water.
