Concern Over Projected Drop in Folsom Lake Levels

Posted: 6/19/2015

FOLSOM, CA (MPG) - At its June 4th meeting, the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA) Board of Directors expressed grave concern over the projected drop in water levels at Folsom Lake. Reacting to an order last week by the State Water Resource Control Board to conserve cold water supplies in the Shasta Reservoir system, the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is releasing water from Folsom Reservoir at a rate that could drop lake levels within a few feet of the water supply outlet that serves the City of Roseville, City of Folsom, and San Juan Water District.

“If the current plan remains unchanged and we experience a dry fall, we could see half a million people in the region without water,” PCWA General Manager Einar Maisch said. “This could, in effect, destroy the entire region’s economy.”

Auburn Chamber Supports Small Business Regulation

Posted: 6/5/2015

AUBURN, CA (MPG) - The Board of Directors of the Auburn Chamber of Commerce has voted to support AB 19 (Chang), which would require the Governor’s Office of Business and Economic Development (Go-BIZ) to review all regulations affecting small businesses. This will help determine whether the regulations need to be amended in order to become more effective, less burdensome or less costly on small businesses.

“Small businesses are disproportionately impacted by costly regulations because, unlike larger businesses, they can’t afford to hire specialists to help them comply with all the paperwork and other requirements of detailed and lengthy regulations,” said Auburn Chamber of Commerce CEO Kevin Hanley.

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - Placer County celebrated an important milestone recently in its efforts to develop a modern regional sewer system that complies with new, more stringent federal and state standards; reduces impacts on foothill steams; and capitalizes on economies of scale.

About 50 people were on hand for a formal ribbon-cutting ceremony at 4928 Auburn Folsom Road in the Horseshoe Bar area near Loomis – a site where, until recently, an aging wastewater treatment plant served the county’s Sewer Maintenance District 3 as it had for 52 years.

PCWA Water Supply to Meet 2015 Demand

Posted: 5/22/2015

PLACER COUNTY, CA (MPG) - At a recent meeting of the Placer County Water Agency (PCWA), the Board of Directors received a comprehensive 2015 drought and water supply report related to the continuing drought emergency. In the report, PCWA staff pointed to adequate water supplies for the remainder of the year.

Deputy Director of Technical Services Tony Firenzi, the Agency’s drought project manager, reported supply within the mountain water systems and the agency’s ability to pump water from the Middle Fork American River ensure the current water supply can meet the demands of PCWA customers. PCWA’s Middle Fork American River Project currently sits at 50 percent capacity, while PG&E’s Lake Spaulding system sits at 85 percent capacity.

“Even with sufficient water supplies we have a responsibility to conserve,” said PCWA General Manager Einar Maisch. “Meeting the 32 percent conservation goal mandated by the state will not be easy. Success is dependent on the voluntary actions of our customers and it’s our priority to continue to provide resources and programs that will help them meet this goal.”
