Drought threatens 'genius' regs that stopped L.A. water grab

MONO COUNTY, Calif. -- Two landmark decisions -- one from the California Supreme Court and another from state water regulators -- made Mono Lake the most protected salt lake in the West. With those 1994 regulations, the State Water Resources Control Board established a system that put the lake’s health above Los Angeles' need for drinking water. But more than two decades later, global warming and a historic drought have put the ultimate goal -- to restore Mono Lake's ecological health -- in jeopardy.
