House OKs study of new reservoir for Tule River tribe

The House on Monday approved a $3 million study of a potential new reservoir to serve the San Joaquin Valley's parched Tule River Indian Tribe. The vote is an important step for the Porterville-area tribe, which has long sought a more reliable water supply. Tribal leaders and their allies envision a dam that would collect water from the south fork of the Tule River flowing from the Sierra Nevada.
