Inyo Supervisors hosting water workshop
The Inyo Board of Supervisors are holding a workshop during Tuesday’s meeting titled “Talking Water Workshop” to discuss water availability. In light of the severity of present drought conditions and the dire shortfall in water for in-valley uses proposed in LADWP’s Proposed Annual Operations Plan, the Board desires input from all segments of the community concerning Owens Valley water availability and use. The Board is inviting representatives of the Department of Water and Power, the Tribal Councils, signatories to the 1997 MOU concerning the Inyo/Los Angeles Long-Term Water Agreement, local water districts, LADWP lessees, State and federal agencies, parties participating in the Owens Lake Master Project Advisory Committee, and the public to join the Board in their discussions.
The workshop is scheduled for Tuesday, April 28th at 1:30 p.m., in the Board of Supervisors Room, at the County Administrative Center in Independence.
The Board encourages those who are interested in learning about and providing information concerning the impacts and mitigation of reduced water availability in Inyo County to attend the workshop and share with the Board your comments and ideas.
