Fiction: "Scientific studies on the Potter Valley Project are only political."

CattailsAfter 38 years of scientific scrutiny of the flows of the Potter Valley Project, and adjustment of the Potter Valley Project operation, solely for the purpose of improving conditions for salmonids, it is prejudiced to state that the results of the FERC proceedings were "only political". NMFS, CDFG, USFWS, USFS, and FERC are all charged with protecting the environment, and all of the stakeholders are bound by the Federal and State Endangered Species Acts. To suggest that the outcome of the FERC Proceedings was purely political attacks the credibility of each of these agencies. Why would they propose flow regimes that actively harm fish and wildlife habitat?
