Just Enough Water


Regarding the Angry Poodle Barbecue of April 3, the “just enough water” to flow into Hilton Creek for the trout is seven to eight acre feet a day — every day. To put this amount in perspective, last Sunday the South Coast used 55 acre feet of water. Over 10 percent of our water usage is going to 900 trout who have been artificially kept alive with this water. My wife and I use about 55 gallons a day. The 900 trout use 2.5 million gallons a day. Think about it.
