Trinity Lake Report and Drought Watch
12/18/14 - The lake is at 2,220', down 150'. The lake is up about 27' since low water on Nov 21,
and it is up 25' this month. The top of the lake has moved north from just south of East Fork to the bluff
across from the airport. Meanwhile, Shasta Lake is up 37' this month.
If the lake doesn't recede again, this fall the lake will
have been the 3rd lowest lowest on record, behind 1977 and 1992, missing the 1992 mark by one foot.
Burn Ban Lifted
The fire season has been declared over as of 12/8. That means that the only burn permit required until next spring is the Air Quality District permit. You can get permits online here
TPUD Community Workshop 3/3
Trinity PUD's General Manager Paul Hauser presented TPUD's very early plan to move
TPUD power lines out of the forest to the Highway 3 easements. The plan has "first glance"
concept approval by CalTrans and USFS.
Those attending the workshop had a lot of questions. The consensus from the group was
to move forward to the next step of the plan, which is serious discussion with the USFS.
Where appropriate and economical, sections of lines would be moved as a section
"ages out" or is in need of major repair. The entire project county-wide could take 15 years.
Here are links to large PDF maps of the power lines in the Trinity Lake area:
Existing: South Lake (3MB)
Existing: Highway 3 (4MB)
