tensions are soaring after three years of low snowfall
Snow-covered mountains of the Tuolumne River watershed are photographed on Wednesday, May 7, 2014, in Yosemite National Park, Calif.

Like almost every river in California, the Tuolumne is oversubscribed: fishermen, kayakers, farmers, and electric plants lay claim to the water before it flows into our faucets.
