Specific vegetation man- agement projects planned within the tim- bered portions of its service area include but are not limited to, Chandler Road, the Cromberg area, Spring Garden area, Graeagle, and Mabie/Delleker. We will also be inspecting for trees and other vegetation in proximity to the power lines as required by the California Public Resource Code Section 4293. Trees that come in contact with power lines are a major cause of out- ages on our system. PSREC strives to strike a healthy balance between our appreciation for trees and our obligation to provide safe, reliable electric service. Through our tree trimming program, we redirect tree growth away from power lines and remove any damaged or diseased trees so we can limit potential damage to the power lines which could be caused by extreme weather condi- tions. If a tree grows too fast or if its proxim- ity to power lines is a threat to our electric system, our experts will trim the growth away from our equipment. Our vegetation management is Conducted following best management practices defined in ANSI A300 Part 7 (ANSI 2012) and the ISA com- panion publication to the ANSI A300 Standards (ISA 2007). Currently PSREC is doing a comprehensive mapping/inspection project that encompass- es the entire service area. These inspec- tions are part of our ongoing work to provide our members with safe, reliable electric ser- vice. We will be inspecting electrical equip- ment as required by California General Orders 95 and 128 and determining the location and condition of our infrastructure. PSREC personnel require access to all of its facilities including meters. PSREC employ- ees will have company ID with them.

According to Plumas County's farm advisor, Holly George, animal agriculturists across California are concerned this "yet-to-be-defined" program could have negative and costly effects on all operations with grazing animals. The Lahontan Regional Water Quality Control Board of South Lake Tahoe is leading this effort. A joint advisory committee made up of representatives from California Farm Bureau, California Cattlemen's Association and California Woolgrowers has convened over the past month to discuss strategies and talking points for public "listening sessions" scheduled at three locations. The closest for Plumas and Sierra residents is Jan. 15 in Redding at the City Council chambers. The point of the January listening sessions is to solicit comments, suggestions and concerns from interested parties and incorporate that information into a proposal for program development. To date, none of the listings identified by the grazing project are within the upper Feather River watershed. However, this doesn't mean that the scope of the project and resultant policies, permits, etc. wouldn't include the upper Feather River watershed, said George. This is because the state water board musEass potent'hal sources:of impairment and protect pristine water bodies. At this time it is not known what form the program will take; however, according to George, people are troubled based on past water quality programs that have become expensive bureaucratic nightmares. For example, according to George, the Irrigated Lands Regulatory Program has cost local agriculturists close to $450,000 over the past eight years without a single penny going to on-the-ground improvements to mitigate water quality concerns. "This money has left our communities to support Sacramento area consultants and regulators," George said. "Locals want legal and political push back to stop the Grazing Regulatory Action Project." An agriculture workshop is scheduled for noon Jan. 22 in the Quincy library, where several topics, including the grazing project, will be discussed. Contact George at for more information.
