The Placer County Water Agency is expressing serious concerns over a Pacific Gas and Electric Company (PG&E) plan to reorganize operations of the PG&E Drum-Spaulding Project, which is a sole source of water for many Placer County residents.
PCWA Director of Resource Development Andy Fecko on Thursday (Sept. 5) briefed the agency Board of Directors on the PG&E proposal and its potential impacts on local water supplies.
Fecko said the last thing we need is for a third party that does not understand the responsibilities of water delivery to Placer County to take over PG&E’s lower Drum hydroelectric system. He hopes we keep it local.
PCWA’s concerns over the amendment application are addressed in comments to the federal government’s draft environmental impact statement on the Drum-Spaulding relicensing. PCWA’s comments, filed with the FERC on Aug. 22, ask for additional water supply protections.
