Healthy salmon mark San Joaquin revival

Article in the SF Chron about releasing salmon into the upper reaches of the San Joaquin. Only a couple of fish, but it's a start and is one more step in the effort to re-introduce salmon into a river where they once thrived.

Tunneling under California's Bay Delta water wars

High Country News looks at the latest on the Delta with Jerry Brown's "I want to get shit done" press conference in July where he announced that he wanted not just one, but two tunnels under the Delta to transfer water downstate.
