Water Agencies File Claim Against U.S.

SAN DIEGO (AP) - Two California water agencies are seeking $500 million for a decade's worth of water that they say the federal government failed to deliver.

Two San Joaquin County water agencies say that since 1993 the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation has failed to deliver 37.5 million gallons a year from New Melones Dam, according to a complaint filed Tuesday in the Court of Federal Claims in Washington, D.C.

Jeff McCracken, a spokesman for the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, said he had not seen the lawsuit and declined to comment.
