There are several key figures at work in profiteering from California's beleaguered water system, but here we highlight some recent and historical media coverage concerning the activities of:

  • Stewart and Lynda Resnick, owners of Roll Corporation and Paramount Farms (and owners in the Kern Water Bank Authority).
  • US Senator Dianne Feinstein, D-California

In September 2009, Resnick wrote to the Senator who wrote to the National Academy of Sciences to request a scientific evaluation of the Delta smelt and salmon biological opinions that regulate Delta pumping currently.

Author Mark Arax published an extended profile of and interview with Stewart Resnick in his recent book, West of the West (published in 2009, pages 17 through 26).
