From the State Water Resources Control Board:
CALIFORNIA WATERFIX HEARING – RULING GRANTING IN PART AND DENYING IN PART THE DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES’ MOTION FOR PROTECTIVE ORDER
On March 28, 2017, North Delta Water Agency (NDWA) served a notice on the Department of Water Resources (DWR) requesting Dr. Parviz Nader-Tehrani, a DWR employee, to appear as a witness for NDWA in the rebuttal phase of Part 1 of the hearing on the water right change petition for the California WaterFix Project. In the alternative, NDWA requested the appearance of the DWR employee or agent most knowledgeable about modeling performed by DWR of water quality and water level impacts associated with the operation of the WaterFix Project at the monitoring station locations identified in a 1981 agreement between DWR and NDWA. NDWA also requested Dr. Nader-Tehrani or the person most knowledgeable to bring specified documents or other evidence to the hearing. On April 12, 2017, DWR submitted a motion for a protective order, seeking to vacate NDWA’s notice. On April 21, 2017, NDWA submitted a response opposing DWR’s motion.
