Sonoma County Gazette, July 2016

Current water issues gain steam….Russian River issues have become as complex and voluminous as the digitalized world we live in, sometimes moving as fast as a bullet train or as slow as a slug, suffering breakdowns from time to time, but persevering none the less.  Some current water issues and activities include:

  • Emergency water conservation requirements relaxed by the State for North Coast.
  • Urban Water Management Plans about to be adopted and submitted to State.
  • Fish Flow Project EIR (renamed “Sonoma County Water Agency’s Fish Habitat Flows and Water Rights Project”) will address permanently lowering summer flows in Russian River to satisfy Biological Opinion.
