What is the S.A.F.E. Plan?
The State Water Resources Control Board has launched a misguided plan that will harm salmon fisheries, small generational family farms and the groundwater supply used by several small disadvantaged communities in the San Joaquin Valley. The Merced Irrigation District is proposing an alternative comprehensive approach: The Merced River S.A.F.E. Plan (Salmon, Agriculture, Flows, and Environment) provides certainty for both the environment and for local water supply in Eastern Merced County.
