Alaska Water Exports has filed an application with the California State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB) for a permit to extract 6,200 acre-feet per year from the Albion River, for transport via tug & bag to San Diego. The local community is solidly opposed to this new threat to their river, and are determined to stop the waterbag scheme.
