The article focuses on the revival of the ancient Tulare Lake led by Congressional candidate Steve Haze to address water-related problems of California. Representative Jim Costa has blamed the Endangered Species Act for the poverty in the San Joaquin Valley region as court-ordered reductions in water deliveries have been made to protect the fish Delta smelt. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger has signed a bill instructing the construction of more water storage during wet years. Michael Greene, legislative director of California State Grange, states that regional self-sufficiency can be attained by the San Joaquin Valley through surface and groundwater storage in the Tulare Lake Basin.
