Oroville Dam report hastens DWR chief ouster. State stiffs flooded farmers.
January 11, 2018•40 min
The independent forensics team reviewing the problems at Oroville Dam have released their report. And it’s a scathing document that criticizes just about everyone involved in the near failure of that structure last February, including the original designers of the project. One of the first casualties? The Department of Water Resources Director. And the farmers who lost cropland and orchards from the massive releases of water there last winter? They have yet to see any money from the state. We have those reports. The President addressed the American Farm Bureau Federation convention last week, and everything was going smoothly, until he brought up one topic that is particularly sensitive for California farmers. You’ll hear the farmers’ reactions. Getting ready to apply fungicides to almond orchards? We have some tips. All that, crop reports and more…on this week’s KSTE Farm Hour.
