I wanted to call your attention to the two upcoming deadlines on Low Flow in the Russian River:
The first is November 22, 2016 when the state requires protest letters to be received no later than 4:30 pm. (see sample letter below).
The second is a response to the EIR (Environmental Impact Review) on Feb. 14, 2017. Both protest letters need to be submitted in order to have your voice heard.
In addition there is a Public hearing in Guerneville on this issue this THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 17, 2016, 6:00 PM at Guerneville Vets Building (16255 First St at Church St.)
Please take the time to read the information and sample letter written by Brenda Adelman, Russian River Watershed Protection Committee
Please download letter, sign it, and send to RRWPC at P.O. Box 501, Guerneville, CA 95446 (or scan and email to firstname.lastname@example.org ). All letters will be sent to appropriate staff at State Water Board and Water Agency. Or you can send letter directly to State address noted at top of letter. (You must also send copy to Todd Schram at Todd.Schram@scwa.ca.gov) The Mailer Letter is to give you more information on this topic.
We urge you to express your own ‘low flow’ concerns on the back of the letter, and/or you can copy letter on to your own letterhead and make desired
changes. Letters must include water rights permits numbers to be changed as at top of sample letter.
Please send signed letters to RRWPC at address above. Protest letters must
be received by State and Water Agency by 4:30 pm on November 22,
2016. If mailing to RRWPC at above address, we suggest they be mailed by Nov. 18th so we have time to scan and send.
