Friant-Kern Canal is getting a lot of bipartisan love – but no money so far
Politicians of all persuasions have jumped in to fix the Friant-Kern Canal “sag,” which has severely reduced the canal’s ability to carry a full load of water in recent years.
Congressman TJ Cox (D-Fresno) introduced H.R. 5316 on Friday. It would provide $200 million to fix the canal, which brings water 152 miles from Millerton Lake to farms and towns along the east side of the San Joaquin Valley ending in Kern County.
