Securing Water Supply Rated Farmers' Most Important Concern

A recent survey of California farmers and members of the state's Farm Water Coalition reveals that the majority of farmers place the highest importance on securing a dependable water supply for the state.

"An 'adequate and dependable water supply' received a 'most important' or 'somewhat important' designation from 87 percent of the Coalition's water district members and 85 percent from its farmer members."

"Storage was the second leading issue for members with 78 percent of responding water districts saying it was 'most important' or 'somewhat important' while farmer members selected it 72 percent of the time. Protection and operation of the Delta was in the third spot for water districts and farmers opted for water quality issues as number three."
