Calif. State Water Resources Control Board Decision 1422 Hearing Packet (PDF)

Location: Sacramento
Status: Live River
By: State of California
Date: February 1, 1983

This is the 20 page hearing packet for a review of conditions in Decision 1422, about whether increased storage should be allowed for New Melones Dam. The original Decision 1422 limited filling of the reservoir for non-flood control needs, but in 1983 an El Nino year brought huge rainfall and runoff that required filling the reservoir. This 1983 hearing resulted in New Melones water rights claims being approved.  The full decision lifting Decision 1422 is here.
