Trinity County weighs in on BDCP

On November 6, the Board of Supervisors of Trinity County adopted a position of opposition to the Bay Delta Conservation Plan (BDCP) to construct an isolated conveyance to move additional Northern California water south of the Delta. The Board resolved as follows:

“that until such time as adequate assurance and protections for the public trust, riparian and county of origin rights, a well as protections for Trinity Lake, Trinity River fisheries, temperature compliance, Trinity County First Preference power rights [rights to power generated by the Trinity River Division of the Central Valley Project], and Trinity County communities are provided to Trinity County, the Board of Supervisors of the County of Trinity opposes the BDCP and construction of the peripheral tunnels and requests that Trinity County’s elected state and federal representatives actively oppose the proposed revision to the BDCP.”
