I really have come to use WaterWrights as a great tool to bring California water management to my desk weekly. Don uses his connections and reports to allow us water managers to see water from a larger geographic landscape than just our backyards.

When I need current data about what’s happening in California water, I open Don’s newsletters …accurate and timely (plus a little humor in a ‘dry’ topic). Real data sorted by water district and topic – exactly what we need. No more searching all the districts’ websites – it is all in one place.
Greg AllenVP & Partner, Redtrac
Don gives it to you straight and timely. He understands the “undertow” and he properly interprets board and staff actions in context so you can understand what is going on. In the water business changes can happen quickly and Don’s information is essential.
John VidovichGrower, Kern County
Water in California is complex. Don is one of a very few people trying to make it less complex. Don’s efforts help us all stay better informed, and better connected.

The reports from Don and his team are not the typical generic meeting notes. They capture the broader flavor of the discussion and often include interesting details that round out a more personal touch.

Don’s WaterWrights report is an email I never delete. His informative reports written in a colloquial style are always a must read to keep abreast of what’s happening in the water world. And it is always a pleasure to see him at a meeting. Thank you Don for all the driving and reporting.
Dan RaytisMcMurtrey, Hartsock & Worth
I find the water reports that Don distributes to be very helpful and informative. Not all of us can attend all of the water meetings in the Valley, but Don can and he does an excellent job of sharing insights and key facts with brevity, candor and good humor. These reports allow the reader to get a better overall view of the entire Central Valley water landscape which is extremely helpful when you work in water policy.

I really appreciate Don’ s commitment to attend meetings across the region and share this valued information with all those concerned about our water future.

WaterWrights.net gives me current updates on issues in different water areas from meetings that I couldn’t attend due to conflicting schedules.

Getting the word out about all the developments in California water is a mighty task. Having Don covering meetings at so many water organizations provides a very valuable service to the community. Information on water issues is critical and Don’s reports are greatly needed and appreciated.
