PG&E plans to protect lake levels
Monday, June 1, 2015 — Pacific Gas and Electric Company announced recently that Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake water levels are projected to be below normal this summer due to continued drought conditions.
PG&E announced the lake level projections now at the 2105 Lake Level Committee meeting in Chico, which is held most years to review and discuss PG&E’s planned water operations for Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake for the remainder of the year. The committee name refers to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission project no. 2105, which is the license number for PG&E’s Upper North Fork of the Feather River hydroelectric project.
