Klamath Water Wars (Releif ?)

A Federal Judge Elizabeth LaPorte (San Fransisco) has asked the NMFS to rethink there listing of Green Sturgeon as a fit canidate under the ESA. The Administration Backed Plan for The Klamath Basin just took a hit! They are sooner or later actually going to let some water down that ditch for the fish.
NMFS (under this administration) has chose not to pursue listing the Green Sturgeon as endangerred. The Judge showed them where in there reports it clearly stated that the Sturgeon face Extinction if they don't get more water and Habitat for spawning. I wonder who forgot to edit out that little bit of info from the report. (Must have been a draft).
