Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan Appears on the Lars Larson Radio Program
Posted: Mon. January 15, 2018, 1:54pm PT

Sr. Fellow Lawrence McQuillan appears on the nationally syndicated Lars Larson radio show to talk about the latest "winner" of the California Golden Fleece Award, the California Department of Water Resources. The DWR was "honored" for their mismanagement of the Oroville Dam, which threatened hundreds of thousands earlier this year when record rains damaged the spillway of the dam. McQuillan details the history of the dam and its faulty maintenance over the years. He recommends that DWR should no longer operate California’s 44 state-owned dams and suggests private water companies or private irrigation districts take over.
