Will Davis see river water?

By From page C2 | August 29, 2014

According to the Woodland-Davis Clean Water Agency, “The regional project will replace deteriorating groundwater supplies with safe, more reliable surface water supplies from the Sacramento River.”

However, according to a release from the UC Davis Center for Watershed Sciences, a study published Aug. 19 states, “Center for Watershed Sciences colleagues Ted Grantham and Joshua Viers report that California has given away five times more surface water than the state actually has, making it hard for regulators to tell whose supplies should be cut during a drought.”

Here’s my question: Does the water right that was acquired to provide water to our regional project have sufficient seniority that we will be likely to receive even a single drop of water from the Sacramento River, or will this be nothing but an enormous waste of money?
