America’s Most Endangered Rivers 2014
Report by American Rivers

American Rivers reports on California’s San Joaquin River Valley, with a cover photo from NWNL’s California Drought expedition, March 2014. The photo shows a canal near Grayson (between Modesto and Los Banos).

The San Joaquin is Central California’s largest river, supporting endangered fish and wildlife, communities, and one of the most productive agricultural regions in the world. But after years of outdated water management it is overtapped, running completely dry in some places, putting the health of the river and the communities that depend on it at risk.
