The huge new reservoir being built in east Riverside County by the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California is more than a quarter-billion dollars over budget. The overrun amounts to approximately 11% of the $2-billion budget. About half of it is due to increased costs for managing the project, said project manager Dennis Majors. Another substantial portion is the increased cost of installing hydraulic systems.

With its streams, adjacent willows, sycamores and oak woodlands, Pamo Valley in North County is an irreplaceable and high quality habitat for the plant and wildlife species that are no longer found in our urbanized river valleys to the west. Its value is enhanced by its isolation and the fact that it is surrounded by the Cleveland National Forest. Such valleys are an endangered species. California has lost 91% of its historic riparian, or stream-side, habitat.

The infamous fresh-water quagga mussel, which has wreaked havoc in the Great Lakes, multiplies so quickly and prolifically that it forms large masses that can clog water pumps, pipelines, power plant intakes and farm irrigation lines.

A top state water official said the decision by the federal government to cut in half coastal Southern California's water allocation from the Colorado River is a "setback but not a crisis." Jeanine Jones, drought preparedness manager for the Department of Water Resources, said she agrees with officials of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California that there is enough water in storage to offset the reduction for at least two years.
