Water Rights and Principals

Don't import water from distant watersheds, MMWD should share water with NMWD; not from Russian River

Equal allocation, per person, at base cost, Live within nature's annual budget, 50 gal/day/person in wet years

Leave alone most of the watershed flow for the other species, 25% for humans, 75% for others, Chinook, Coho, Steelhead plus

Conserve Water, Don't flush or irrigate with potable water, Reuse grey water, Price high water use /person + dwelling => progressively

Conserve Energy, Don't move water unnecessarily, Forget Desal
