David Jackson’s planned move from Brookings to Shady Cove, Oregon took an unexpected turn for the worst on Tuesday just before 5 p.m. when the U-Haul he was driving, packed with all of his and his wife’s belongings, allegedly experienced some mechanical issues.

A new regulation requiring water diversion permit holders to monitor withdrawal beyond what they are currently doing — down to the acre-feet-per minute — is drawing fire from Del Norte County Supervisor Chris Howard and other stakeholders because new monitoring systems could cost thousands of dollars to install.

“Is it really necessary in a community where there has never been a drought?” asked Howard during a recent interview from his office at Alexandre Dairy.
