Clearing the western road to Yosemite - finally

fresnobee.com — On the steep wall along Ferguson Ridge, an American flag waves above imposing rows of metal "drapery" that stretch hundreds of feet downward. The cable netting is a safety feature covering the face of a massive, 9-year-old rock slide, but it's also a gawker's delight.

San Joaquin River restoration timetable extended

fresnobee.com — After missing ambitious deadlines to restore the San Joaquin River, federal leaders this week extended deadlines to 2030 and beyond while holding down federal appropriations funding to less than $50 million annually. The new plan has a bigger federal price tag, growing from about $900 million to more than $1.2 billion, according to the U.S.

Water fix for 7 Tulare County towns still years away

fresnobee.com — In 2011, folks in northern Tulare County were in an uproar about a project that seemed ready to get fresh Kings River water for seven communities where dangerous chemicals lurk in the well water. The river water was made available - no small feat anywhere in California - yet the project was going nowhere.

1,231 still water daily, but many others now conserving

fresnobee.com — More than three-quarters of the folks who were watering every day in early June changed their ways by early July, say Fresno water leaders. In June, 5,560 customers were watering daily - using millions of gallons of water in violation of the city's rules which only allow twice-a-week landscape irrigation.

Moody superstar: Which face will El Niño show us this winter?

fresnobee.com — California is dreaming again of a cigar-shaped superstar hanging out in the sun for thousands of miles along the equator. El Niño, the moody blob of warm ocean water, is spreading in the Pacific right now. Last year when El Niño began hinting at an appearance, media mania descended quickly, raising the possibility of a gully-washing winter to break the intense drought.

Why am I seeing water flowing now? It’s a bump from spring storms

fresnobee.com — More than a few of you have noticed water flowing in canals lately. Tuesday morning, the water flow in the San Joaquin River picked up. All of a sudden, there's water? What happened to the desperate drought? The drought is still on. The extra water came from a few storms in May and June.

Disputed San Joaquin River water will go to west Valley farmers

fresnobee.com — Federal officials Tuesday will begin releasing a disputed allotment of San Joaquin River water from Millerton Lake to a group of west San Joaquin Valley growers with water rights dating back to the 1870s. East-Valley growers last week had argued the unexpected allotment belonged to them, citing an agreement this year with the west-side growers over water in Millerton.
