The population just outside the Delta interior has grown significantly over the last 20 years, so it would make sense that the boating and fishing industries would have grown a lot, too. But they haven’t.</p><p> Thu, 27 Feb 2014 01:34:10 +0000 Lisa Morehouse 40272 at http://kalw.org Navigating the Delta: Holding on to a Boating Economy and Culture Interview with an environmental scientist: Where has all California's water gone? http://kalw.org/post/interview-environmental-scientist-where-has-all-californias-water-gone <p></p><p>As California faces an extreme drought, water politics are under a microscope now more than ever.
