The protocols that protected the Southcoast are being ignored. Since Cachuma was built deliveries have been reduced by 20% when the lake reached 100,000 acre feet and by 40% when it reached 80,000 acre feet. It is now 78,000 acre feet and there has been no reduction. Why? Because we have State Water - the most unreliable supply in Calif. Why aren't local agenices asking us to conserve water - one agency in particular has such enormous debts and expensive 'corporate' executive staff that if customers reduce their water purchases the agency will be in significant financial trouble. Thank the expense of State Water and the irresponsibility of a water board that pays $300,000 (pay and benefits) to someone without any previous water experience for the failure to alert our communities to the looming water shortage.

During the drought he didn’t visit the estate but wanted a green lawn just in case. He hired water trucks to bring water to his property after the water district cut him off - the neighbors were NOT amused and that ended. The well worked during the drought but then went dry. A total scum bag.

Great, factual and informative article. Thank you. Now can you get the local water agencies to start reducing their deliveries from Cachuma. The lake is far below the level where reductions usually start but GWD seems to believe that it will either rain a lot or that they can survive without water. Their irresponsibility is breath-taking.

How can the season end on March 31 and open on April 1. Doesn't that mean that the season is year round, closing when the limit is reached?

If you are curious why some of us would prefer that the mass media not provide too much information about backcountry spots I have a picture to send you. There is now graffiti on the rocks in Oso Creek above Upper Oso Campground. Why not let those that are interested in Los Padres visit REI or talk with others about their interest. They will then be directed to groups that can introduce them to Los Padres and get some education about how to treat nature. I spend too much time picking up trash and shell casings after hunting season to desire more visits by those that haven't learned to respect nature.
