Trinity Lake Report

2/28/20 - The lake is now back up over 2,342', down 28' from the spillway, 83% full, 112% of average for the date. The lake is up nearly 4 1/2' since New Years Day. Due to a wet winter and spring in 2018-19, and a serendipitous failure of an output valve in the dam last spring, the lake is in great shape this winter! The percent of average number is slipping because the lake is high, but the inflows are below normal.

The snow is melting with all the sunshine and warm weather we are having. When they start dumping the lake in May, there will not be much backfill to recover unless we get more snow. However, given the great starting point we have now, this should be a great boating season!

Here is a graph of historic lake elevation (updated 1/26) showing spillway and Trinity Center ramp elevations. (The gaps in the line on the graph are due to missing or bad data in the state's database.)

Vote Yes on Measures D and E
on the March 3, 2020 ballot
SAVE our County Ambulance Service!!

Our county ambulance service is at risk.

When North Lake fire department medical first responders determine that a patient needs more medical attention, almost always it is a Trinity County Life Support (TCLS) ambulance that meets our North Lake ambulance along the way and does the final transport to the hospital.

TCLS provides this medical and transport service that our local fire departments cannot offer full time.

TCLS is staffed with a paramedic and provides an essential service to all of us in the North Lake. This medical service is not publicly funded, as is the Sheriff, for example. TCLS is a non-profit private company offering its service like any proviate company — without funding, the service goes away.

TCLS's funding is declining rapidly due to inadequate payments by government medical insurance programs, and we may lose this critial safety service.

TCLS is proposing to restructure as a public community services district (CSD) with public funding by a parcel assesment.

Two measures are on the March ballot -- one to create the district, the other to approve the assessment. Both measures must pass to save TCLS service to our area.

Vote Yes on Measures D and E

Read more about the ballot measures on the Trinity Life Support CSD webpage.

Fire Season Is Fast Approaching !!

We are in an extended winter dry spell, and the fuels are drying out fast. Whether or not we get more precipication this winter, the coming fire season will be a risky one. A lot of folks are taking advantage of the sunny days to burn yard debris. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!

You MUST have an Air Quality Management District burn permit to burn yard debris, and you MUST ensure your burn day is an authorized burn day by calling the AQMD at 1-866-BURN-DAY and confirm Zone 3 is "ok for burning" that day.

Check out all the fire information on our Fire Page, and download TCVFD's "All About Fire Permits" white paper to get all the current information about campfires and debris piles.

Be safe out there!
