June 11, 2014

A chapter in the Owens Valley water story became crystal clear during cattleman Mark Lacey’s presentation at the Metabolic Studio’s IOU Garden in Lone Pine Monday evening.
The 1991 Long Term Water Agreement between Inyo County and the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power appeared to provide a steady flow of irrigation and stock water for the valley’s ranchers. Those ranchers are now caught between a long history of consistency in both LADWP lease agreements and water supply and the added pressure of water diversions for restoration of Mono and Owens lakes and consecutive drought years.
