Placer Board of Supervisors Talking Water in Tahoe

The Placer County board of Supervisors, meeting in Tahoe this week, approved 2 letters signed by Chairman Holmes to the governor about placer counties concerns about water. The letters detail Placer County’s concerns about the proposed Bay Delta Conservation Plan. Supervisor Kirk Uhler appearing on the Noon News on KAHI shared the point that the population of the state has more than doubled with no new water storage infrastructure since 1960.

The proposed Bay Delta Conservation plan has gotten poor reviews from many north state water interests including placer county Water Agency and Nevada Irrigation District for taking north state water and delivering it to south state users, putting north state lakes and reservoirs low if not empty as one report showed would occur to Folsom lake once every 10 years according the plan.
