In the Nov.-Dec. 1995 issue of California Agriculture, we reported that lawsuits had been filed to establish rights to the waters of Putah Creek after water diversions for urban and agricultural use caused the lower Putah Creek to dry out and large numbers of its fish to die in 1989. After 6 years of litigation, a Superior Court judge in Sacramento ruled to increase water flows to the creek by about 10,500 acre feet a year — roughly a 50% increase over the current release schedule. Plaintiffs had asked that flows be increased by 30,000 acre feet per year.
