The Water Forum Planning Group is being convened to discuss and evaluate options for a local solution that responds to the planned decommissioning of the Potter Valley Project and can inform future negotiations with PG&E.
The Planning Group is comprised of approximately 35 members representing a cross-section of interests in Sonoma, Mendocino, Lake, and Humboldt Counties.
Goals for the Planning Group include:
- Bring together interested parties in the Russian River and Eel River basins in a collaborative, solutions-oriented process.
- Improve understanding of water reliability uncertainties in the Russian River and Eel River basins.
- Problem-solve around the future of the Potter Valley Project, water supply resilience, and fisheries in both river basins.
- Identify funding sources to support water supply resiliency solutions and environment benefits in response to the planned decommissioning of the Potter Valley Project.
