California Storage Oct 4
Dams, you get several good things by their existence. You get stored water for people in AG, as well as water that would not exist in summertime or in the fall that you could help with fish flows. You get hydroelectric generation. You get prevention against floods because you can store this water during the wild rainy season and keep that Army Corps of Engineers runs those operations for flood control around the country without the dams. Imagine the flooding you would have in those regions that can have that high flow during extraordinary rain events. You get recreation, you get a lot of good things from storing water. We used to do that. We used to think ahead to doing that. Now we think we're getting ahead by tearing out this infrastructure that people need, and it actually can be beneficial and is beneficial to nature as well. I've got many constituents that aren't farming at all this year to grow crops, to do that honest, good work that they do because they all seem to be appreciated for what they're doing. It's always a fight. They always are going to be heading into town to defend something, defend their water supply, defend their land usage, defend against some more regulations thought out by somebody in Sacramento or in Washington, D.C..
