Trinity Lake Report
12/11/13 - The lake is at 2,276', down 94' from the spillway.
The 90-day outlook from NOAA says we have equal chances of having above or below normal precipitation — in other words, they have no idea what we're
going to get. We did not get much water content out of the most recent storm. We are well behind "normal" with two
of our "rainy months" already past
Trinity Center CSD Board Vacancies Filled
At a special meeting of the Trinity Center CSD board, the two board vacancies were filled by appointment. Former board members
Virginia Allin and Dewey Baird had chosen not to run for reelection in the November election. As a result, as of December 6,
there were two open board seats.
At the December 10 special board meeting, applicants for the two seats were reviewed by the remaining board. It turned out
that Virginia Allin of Trinity Center applied to rejoin the board by appointment, and Pat Frost of Covington Mill applied to
join the board. Because there were only two applicants, no closed session was required, and the board appointed the two applicants
to fill two-years terms on the board. As of the January board meeting when the two new board members will be sworn in, the board
will be fully staffed again.
We welcome back Virginia, who has been a great asset to the board for many years. And we are very pleased to have Pat Frost
join the board. Pat has much experience with special district operations given his years of service on the Trinity County Resource
Conservation District board. Being so familiar with the RCD's fire prevention activities, as well as the Fire Safe Council,
Pat is particularly well suited to serve the citizens of the TCCSD given that the primary activity of the CSD is oversight
of the TCVFD. Welcome, Pat!
Bay Delta Conservation Plan and Delta Tunnels
Controversy continues 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:

TLRA submitted comments on both documents to the USBR
and Department of Interior Secretary Sally Jewell on July 31, 2013.
TRLA has a voting seat on the Trinity River advisory committee, know as the Trinity River Adaptive
Management Working Group (TAMWG), attends TMC meetings, and is a member of the Trinity Count Collaborative Group.
