Read this EXTRA Year-End Issue of “Every Last Drop,” the Keep Long Valley Green Coalition’s newsletter

We thought it proper to end the launch year of Every Last Drop with an article that has received much attention. It was written by Richard M.

Davis School of Law, and looks at how LADWP’s unilateral revocation of water allocation to Mono County’s farmers and ranchers triggered a California Environmental Quality Act challenge in the courts. It was published as a letter to the editor in the Mammoth Times at the end of November.
