The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP), has recently released several articles related to its water policy in Mono County.
The latest involves the local water baron’s plan to halt the release of irrigation water to 10 rancher/lessees on 6,400 acres of land in Long Valley.
Dozens of members of the public, ranchers and environmental groups spoke out against the move at a Mono County Supervisors meeting on August 7.
Immediately following the meeting, LADWP released statements avowing its “environmental commitment to Mono County.”
Without water the green pastures may turn brown, increase fire danger and be detrimental to the livelihood of the cattle punchers and the flora and fauna. But there is no scientific data to prove that point.
