The Orange County Water District has received permission to nearly double the amount of water it can store behind Prado Dam in exchange for spending $1 million to help an endangered songbird. The agreement, reached Friday, was timely because the downpour over the weekend filled the Corona dam basin to its new capacity, assuring 2 million Orange County residents of an ample water supply.

A federal wildlife agency has designated a 12-mile strip of the Santa Clara River as a "critical habitat" for the least Bell's vireo, a long-awaited move that biologists say will help protect the endangered songbird's nesting areas. The designation triggers another layer of government review for landowners seeking federal permits to dredge the river channel or stabilize its banks east of Piru, raising farmers' fears that it could slow or even halt efforts to protect their property during floods.

An agreement to raise water storage at Prado Dam one foot, thereby covering some of the habitat of an endangered songbird, was reached Thursday after water officials expressed concern that snowmelt was going out to sea. "It is an emergency program," said James A. Van Haun of the Orange County Water District, "because we are losing water to the ocean."
