The Kern Water Bank Authority held its board of directors meeting on Tuesday, June 2, 2020 at its Bakersfield headquarters and remotely. Only they didn’t. I called in and General Manager Jon Parker announced the meeting will be postponed until tomorrow due to some nearby businesses being closed. I asked him if this was due to expected protests and possibly riots and he told me basically the information wasn’t complete but if they are going to err they will do so on the side of caution. The meeting will be held tomorrow at 3pm instead. God bless them in Bakersfield, Bless us in Fresno and Clovis and bless you where ever you are.

Located on a large, undeveloped section of the Kern River’s sandy alluvial fan, the Kern Water Bank covers nearly 30 square miles over California’s southern San Joaquin Valley. Ideally situated, both for its unique geology and its proximity to water supply and delivery systems, the Kern Water Bank plays a dual role in California’s economically vital agricultural heartland.
