In March 2008, the California Water Impact Network joined with the California Sportfishing Protection Alliance to lodge a comprehensive Public Trust complaint against the State Water Resources Control Board.


Our complaint argued that the State Water Board had failed to carry out its public trust responsibilities in the Delta and laid out several policy areas where the State Board had failed. The State Water Board dismissed our complaint in late October 2008.
