Conservation district hears appeals from water users
Thursday, July 23, 2015 — The Honey Lake Valley Resource Conservation District held a special meeting at 3:15 p.m. Thursday, July 16 to hear appeals from water users.
Four complaints — one from the California Department of Fish and Wildlife and three from the Lassen Irrigation Company — had been left unresolved by the district Water Advisory Committee and therefore referred to the RCD board.
The complaint from CDFW alleged water was available but not delivered to the wildlife areas at Dankin in the south county from November 2014 through February 2015.
By a 3-0 vote (board members Jesse Claypool, Shaun Giese and Larry Cabodi voted aye, and board member Laurie Tippin and Wayne Langston were absent), the board agreed to “move forward” and “solve the problem in the future” since there is no water left in the system this season due to the drought to correct the alleged deficiency.
