Launch of First-Ever ‘California Water Rights Atlas’

Empowers Citizens, Unlocks Information, Improves Water Management

SACRAMENTO, CA – Former Brown Administration Resources Secretary Huey Johnson, president of the Resource Renewal Institute, will unveil the first-ever public ‘California Water Rights Atlas’ on Friday, April 12. This online tool will enable citizens, policymakers, media and others to view thousands of current California water rights claims.

“For the past century, powerful special interests claimed ownership of both real and imaginary water through political contributions.  Other states outgrew this corrupt practice long ago, but not California. The California Water Rights Atlas may be the sunlight that finally breaks the fog bank of chaos and mismanagement that cripples the state’s water system,” said RRI President Johnson.

RRI is a nonprofit, public interest organization, and is providing this “gift of information” to the people of California free of charge.
