The Department of Interior in December 2000 promised two California tribes it would restore flows in a river in order to fulfill its treaty and trust responsibilities.

The Yurok Tribe and the Hoopa Valley Tribe are still waiting for the government to live up to its promise. A lawsuit has delayed implementation.

The water is intended to help restore fish vital to both tribes.
