Salmon River

Washington, DC: (Nov-15-07) The Natural Resources Defense Council filed a lawsuit against the US government in 1988, over restoring salmon to the San Joaquin River. The 19-year-long suit reached a settlement when a key US House committee approved legislation to implement a controversial water settlement, aimed at restoring salmon to the river. The deal was struck, though there were objections by minority Republicans that some farmers in the Central Valley wouldn't get enough water. Sources say that the settlement, which cost the government $170 million, still awaits approval from the full House and Senate. Sources claim that the legislation is required to implement a federal court settlement that would return water to a dry 60-mile stretch of the San Joaquin River by 2009. [EXAMINER: SALMON RIVER]
