Craig M. Wilson | April 5th, 2011

The purpose of this report is to outline the history of the Statements Program and explain recent statutory changes that will enable the program to more comprehensively fulfill its original intent of providing meaningful information regarding water diversion and use, particularly in the Delta. The report also underscores a serious funding problem that threatens the integrity of the Statements Program and explores issues related to the new requirement for diverters to provide monthly records of water diversion based on the use of best available technologies.
