This is an interesting article in the Seattle Times (Oct 27, 2019), titled:  Wall Street spends millions to buy up Washington state water.  That sounds pretty ominous.  The article has personal stories, interviews, great photos and useful graphics about water rights, water banking, family farms,  and corporate investment.  The Methow Valley is featured in the article.  Lots of discussion of the Columbia and its tributaries.  ~z

Sounds like they have run out of toothpaste to squeeze out of the California tube. Here they come. A high level view of the connected dots, follow the money:

In 2015, Petrus formed Crown Columbia Water Resources LLC, a government-approved water bank active in the Pacific Northwest.  Crown Columbia controls 50,000 acre feet of water in the Columbia-Snake River Basin.

To this day, approximately half of the firmís investment capital is from retired partners of Goldman, Sachs & Co.

Always wondered why Dry Falls didn't live up to its name.
