California regulators on Monday proposed a first-of-its-kind, $1.5 million fine for a group of Central Valley farmers accused of illegally taking water during the drought.
It would be the first such fine against an individual or district with claims to water that are more than a century-old, known as senior water rights holders. Entities with those rights have long enjoyed immunity from cutbacks.
