If the Owens River in California was allowed flow freely would there be enough waterflow to permit river rafting?
A little background– right now the City of Los Angeles takes most of the water from the Eastern Sierras that would otherwise replenish Mono Lake, the Owens River, and Owens Lake. I’m specifically wondering how big the water-flow on Owens River would be if LA didn’t take the water? Would it be enough to support activities like river rafting? What about the river and lake ecosystems? Would fish and other creatures thrive?
