Land owners in the Sacramento and San Joaquin Delta have until Friday to prove they are legally taking water from rivers and streams. The order comes after the State Water Resources Control Board received information that some riparian and pre-1914 water right holders may be illegally diverting stored water in the Sacramento and San Joaquin watersheds and the Delta. Matt Weiser is a senior writer at The Sacramento Bee covering water and the environment. He join us to explain why California is making these water users prove their rights, and what this means for those water users.
