Trinity Lake Report
3/1/15 - As we enter March (can you believe two months of 2015 are over already?), the lake is creeping up to 2,271'
(down 99' from the spillway.) Inflows have slowed to a trickle again. There's no meaningful rain in the forecast until
late in the month, and that' so far out the forecasts are unreliable. Looks like no March Miracle this year.
Here is the updated graph
of historic lake elevations The lake is up about 77' since
the low water mark on Nov 21, about 4' lower than one year ago. You can also see that the Nov low water mark is
the third lowest ever, the prior two
being 1977 and 1992. We missed getting down to the 1992 level by only a foot or so. (The gaps in the line on the
graph are due to missing or bad data in the state's database.)
The paved Trinity Center ramp is usable down to about 2,295' (down 75').
To get Trinity Center ramp just barely in the water, we need to come up another 24'.
We have had some 34" of rain so far this rain year (since July 1) with little snow
in the Alps, and that brought us up 77'.
We need another 12" of rain and snowmelt to get our ramp in the water. Keep praying for rain!.
Bowerman Barn and Ranch Work Day
The Bowerman Gang held a productive work day on Saturday, Feb 21. The many fruit trees near the barn and the old Bowerman
homestead site were pruned. They were long overdue. Also, the barbed wire fence across the road was taken down, leaving just
the pasture northeast of the barn fenced for the mules.

Bay Delta Conservation Plan and Delta Tunnels
as more people become aware of the Governor's proposal to divert Northern Calif water south through
two 32-foot diameter tunnels under the Delta. You can read much about this plan on our Stop
the Tunnels page. Below are some recent articles and news:
