Trinity Lake Report

4/19/19 - The lake elevation has slipped a foot to 2,350' above sea level, 20' down from the spillway, down a point to 88% full and the percent of normal for the date has slipped to 108%. The lake has peaked for now as they dump the lake water down the river for the questionable fish experiment on the river. We can only hope that this waste of water is backfilled by snowmelt next month. Big Flat's snow sensor (end of Coffee Creek Road) is down to just over 5' of snow at 5,100' above sea level.

Trinity Center ramp is closed at least until next month for the widening, repaving and rennovation project. Minersville ramp is open. The exposed ramp paving is complete. The lower portion of the ramp may have to wait until after summer season. However, the ramp should be open this coming summer for boating season, and we expect the lower portion of the ramp to be completed next fall.

Here is a graph of historic lake elevation (updated 3/25) 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.)

Notice: The Trinity Center CSD Is Looking For
Candidates To Fill A Board Vacancy

After over a decade of service to the community as a board member of TCCSD, Glen Ahmann has decided to retire from the board. He and his wife have a home in Eureka and spend much time there making board meetings difficult to attend.

Therefore, the board is seeking candidates who would like to help manage the TCCSD. The successful applicant will serve the remainder of Glen's term which expires in December 2020.

Here is a notice of the opening and information on how to apply.

California Boating and Waterways Commission Approved Our Boat Ramp Project!

At the Feb 8, 2017 meeting of the state Boating and Waterways commission in Weaverville, approval was granted for the $1.64 million improvement project for the Trinity Center launching facility. The grant will be given to the USFS to do the work since they manage the National Recreation Area that controls recreation on Trinity Lake.

The USFS had applied for a $1.64 million grant to improve the parking, restroom and launch facilities at our boat ramp. The plan is to extend and re-pave the double-lane ramp down to the bottom of the current single-lane, put in a new floating courtesy dock, install all-new restrooms, and more! The details are in this document.

The day before the meeting, on Feb 7, the commission toured the Trinity Center ramp and concluded that this is a very valuable resource for our community in need of overhaul. A strong showing of local support both at the ramp tour and at the meeting in Weaverville went a long way toward convincing commission members of the need. They said multiple times that they were impressed with the public show of support for the project.

A big Thank You to California Department of Boating and Waterways, the USFS NRA team, the Trinity Collaborative, and, of course, a small, tireless group of locals who fought to keep this project on the radar and moving forward!

As of the fall of 2018, the project is underway. The ramp will reopen for the 2019 boating season, but the bottom portion of the upgrade will have to wait for low water.
