SOLLV attorney Rose Zoia has sent a letter to California  Fish & Wildlife District Manager for the Northern Region Neil Manji , requesting that CDFW officials issue a written stop-work order to Caltrans suspending its construction activity.  

Little Lake Valley is home to the longest Coho Salmon run in northern California, as well as steelhead and Chinook salmon. “The stop work order is essential to protecting the future of salmon in this valley.”  ” said Sara Grusky of SOLLV.  

Grusky said a delegation of about 25 Willits residents will travel to Sacramento Thursday to meet with politicians.

 

On May 7th, CalTrans will be attending the Calif Transportation Committee meeting and requesting $3million for the wetlands and riparian areas “mitigation” plans



 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Plans to halt fracking in California advanced in the Legislature Monday, when a key committee approved three measures that would prohibit the practice until the state can study it further.

The oil industry eyes an estimated 15 billion barrels of oil that can be reached through fracking in central and coastal areas of the state But critics say the impact of the chemicals on nearby water supplies is largely unknown. 

One of the moratoriums, AB 1323,  authored by Assemblywoman Holly Mitchell (D-Los Angeles); the other, AB 1301, came from  Bloom (D-Santa Monica). Assemblyman Adrin Nazarian (D-Sherman Oaks) authored the third bill, AB 649.

All three bills passed 5 to 3, with Democrats voting in favor and Republicans standing in opposition. 

Assemblyman Richard Bloom, the author of AB1301, said that a moratorium on fracking could act as an incentive to force the state and energy companies to develop new regulations.

California lacks regulations on fracking, which has been used for decades in the state. 

Paul Deiro, a lobbyist for the Western States Petroleum Assn., said a moratorium would cost the state jobs. “It would have a chilling effect on future investment in this state,” he said.


 

 

 

 

 

 

The Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in locating a missing personGarret Rodriguez who told his father told him he was coming to Humboldt County to work on a ranch growing medical marijuana in an area known as “Murder Mountain.” Neither the father nor Garret's friends have not heard from him for over six monthsGarret Rodriguez is a 29 year old white male, 5’8” tall, 180 lbs, brown hair, green eyes, driving a 1998 Dodge Ram Pickup, California plate 7P63498. contact the Humboldt County Sheriff’s Office at 707-445-7251 or the Tip Line 707-268-2539.”



 

 

 

 

 The water quality and stream flow impacts associated with marijuana cultivation will be discussed by representatives of several state and federal agencies at the Thursday, May 2, meeting of the North Coast Regional Water Quality Board in Eureka. 

Activities associated with large scale marijuana cultivation, such as tree and vegetation removal, grading, terracing on steep slopes,  stream diversions and filling, etc. are frequently undertaken without engineering design or environmental review.

Such activities can cause significant environmental damage to waterways .

The meeting will take place at 9 a.m., May 2, in the Wharfinger Building, #1 Marina Way, Eureka.
