Take Action to Protect Eel River Flows

We need your help.

Under orders from the State Water Board and federal fisheries managers, the Sonoma County Water Agency (SCWA) is rewriting the rules that govern stream flows in the Russian River watershed. (Click here to learn more about the Fish Flows Project DEIR)

This is important to Friends of the Eel River because water diverted from the upper mainstem Eel River through the Potter Valley Project has long been used to cover up the over-allocation and mismanagement of the Russian River’s own flows.

Please join us in writing to the Sonoma County Water Agency.

Please ask them:

  • Not to use Eel water to cover for mismanagement of the Russian River.
  • To end illegal diversions from the Russian River.
  • To ensure that instream flows are protected from further diversions.
