Valley farmers are protesting the state’s Bay Delta Water Plan.
The plan would take water from the Merced farmers and keep it up north to help the salmon population.
Growers say the impact would be catastrophic to their livelihoods, while Delta communities would benefit.
Another hearing will be held in Modesto Tuesday, after a huge turnout of farmers in Merced Monday, in a fight for water.
Democratic Assemblyman Adam Gray of Merced appeared live on CBS47 Eyewitness News This Morning, to talk more about the impact.
