Scott/Shasta Water Issues
It's a general rule of thumb that discussions of water allocations in the West will always be contentious. And so they are with the Scott and Shasta Rivers. The California Department of Fish and Game will eventually establish minimum in-stream flows, but lawsuits and disagreements stalled the process more than three years ago. It is re-starting now, but is off to a rocky start. We'll talk to Siskiyou County ranchers about their perspective.
