Tamarisk Removal

Chas has some new information on this subject, something I posted on back in August. I was stunned by this:

"Today, the tamarisk are consuming about 58,600 acre-feet of water - 19 billion gallons - annually, but the number will grow to nearly 130,000 acre-feet annually - one-fifth of the water in the river in an average year - when the plants completely take over and grow larger."
