Renaming article to "Central Valley, California"
I just reverted the move of this article to Central Valley, California, because there was no discussion or test of consensus.
- Oppose move. Towns in the USA are disambiguated with commas, while natural features (such as valley, rivers, and mountains) are disambiguated with parentheses. I thus believe that the article should remain at Central Valley (California) —hike395 (talk) 03:01, 16 January 2014 (UTC)
1.75 million dairy cows
The Irish times writes:  "There are no fewer than 1.75 million dairy cows in California ... The Harris Ranch is the feedlot home to no fewer than 100,000 cattle. " Another source would be Farmageddon_(book) NewJohn (talk) 18:27, 5 March 2014 (UTC)
Include Contra Costa and Solano Counties?
Apparently, the region maps on both http://www.visitcalifornia.com/Explore/ and http://www.parks.ca.gov/?page_id=873 include eastern Contra Costa County and Solano County as part of the valley. Thoughts about mentioning it in this article too? Zzyzx11 (talk) 07:51, 30 July 2014 (UTC)
The flood of 1861-62
"I also worry about a mega-flood hitting the region, as we've seen every one to two centuries. The last one was in 1861-62, and filled the entire Central Valley (350 miles long and 20 miles wide) with water 20 feet deep. This was caused by 43 days of rain from atmospheric river storms."
From an interview with Dr. B. Lynn Ingram, (a professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Berkeley, California. The primary goal of her research is to assess how climates and environments have changed over the past several thousand years based on the geochemical and sedimentologic analysis of aquatic sediments and archaeological deposits, with a particular focus on the US West.)
I find this quite interesting. That is a huge flood and if more info can be sourced, it is clearly something for the article to atleast mention, if not actually provide a separate article on the subject. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 22:53, 6 September 2014 (UTC)
Just found the main article about the "Great flood of 1862". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Great_Flood_of_1862#Flooding_of_the_Central_Valley
"west valley"/"east valley"
This Matter article: https://medium.com/matter/why-the-california-drought-is-all-your-fault-55f81a947ce2 mentions a "west valley" and "east valley" quite often. It would be nice to have that explained here. ArthurDent006.5 (talk) 08:48, 30 December 2014 (UTC)
