IOA Wednesday, June 20, 2012 Feather River Bulletin i j QCSD considers solar, exper ments with poogloos' Laura Beaton Staff Writer Ibeaton@plumasnews.com Two presentations took top billing at the monthly Quin- cy Community Services Dis- trict (QCSD) board meeting June 14. The first, by Feather River Solar Electric owner Bill Battagin, proposed a solar powered electric system that could significantly reduce the district's electric needs. With an upfront cost of ze- ro dollars, QCSD would bene- fit by paying a lower rate to Battagin for the 25 percent of power that his solar system (roughly 1,200 panels in a 2- acre array) would generate. Why not put in an array that would provide 100 percent of the plant's electric needs? Battagin stated that an array of that size is be- yond the scope of his re- sources. The board asked Battagin for a detailed proposal of the project, which would essen- tially make Battagin the own- er and operator of the new so- lar electric system, and QCSD the consumer. Battagin would charge QCSD a lower rate than cur- rent provider Plumas-Sierra Rural Electric Cooperative (PSREC), and the plant would also save money by not pay- ing auxiliary charges that major utility companies must pay. QCSD already has one so- lar project installed, which they call the "Headworks." This system has been work- ing wonderfully, prompting further exploration to ex- pand solar electric generat- ing capabilities. The second presentation wa s by Kraig Johnson, vice president of technology of Salt Lake City-based Waste- water Compliance Systems (WCS) inc. wcs patented the bio-dome in 2008, a sub- mersible unit for use in wastewater lagoons to pro- mote naturally occurring bio- logical activity in a body of water. These 6-foot-tall igloo- shaped plastic domes ("poogloos") increase benefi- cial bacteria that consume water-borne contaminants and reduce'biochemical oxy- gen demand, total suspended solids and ammonia-nitro- gen: all important variables that must be kept under con- trol. Kraig hauled a bio-dome to Quincy and installed it for a pilot study that will collect data to monitor its effective- ness. If the poog]oo does the work it is designed to do, QCSD could address its non- compliance issues by clean- ing up its wastewater to meet state and other regulatory standards at a fraction of the cost of a mechanical facility. In 2007, QCSD received a bid for a full-blown treatment plant, called an oxidation ditch. In today's dollars that cost equates to $36 million. Understandably, the commu- nity is eager to experiment with WCS' bio-domes. After a closed session re- garding real property negoti- ations on an easement at 270 Crescent St., the board dealt with the usual business of ap- proving minutes of meetings in May, financial reports and General Manager Larry Sul- livan's report. Board director Denny Churchill gave a report from the last meeting of the Amer- ican Valley Community Ser- vices Authority (AVCSA), which consists of board members from QCSD and East Quincy Services District (EQSD). AVCSA was formed when a merger between the two ser- vice districts was imminent. With the dissolution of the merger, it was decided that the AVCSA should also be dissolved, but first a memo- randum of understanding must be developed for the two districts. In other business, the board was updated by QCSD operator Mike Green about fuel being stolen from vehi- cles and tanks at the plant• The heavy gauge chain lt-- fence has been cut and on at least two occasions, thieves have absconded with an un- known quantity of diesel fu- el, gasoline and heating oil. Aluminum shoring panels wer.e also missing. The sheriff's office was notified and an investigation is ongo- ing. Security cameras are being looked into as an op- tion for increased security and safety.

Emerson explained how she could help Plumas-Sier- ra. She joined Marshall in a tag-team presentation for the supervisors. Emerson said a $4 billion government stimulus fund was established two years ago to help bring faste'r In- ternet to areas that are con- sidered "un-served or under- served." Some of the govern- ment money comes from cellphone users. "You've already paid for this through, user fees. At the end of your phone bill are at least three individual line item user fees," Emer- son said. "Those monies pay into a universal services fund. And the feds mandate that each state gets a certain portion or percentage of what their population pays into it." But Emerson said areas like Plumas County -- which has a smali popula- tion spread over a large area -- doesn't fit the govern- ment's model for allocating the funds. "Their calculation does not work for Northern Cali- fornia because there are too TRIAL, from page 1A The court document said that Jackson was transport- ed in handcuffs to the Plumas County Jail for blood testing, which detected no drugs. According to the narra- tive, the test results arrived after Jackson spent a..ht in jail. The complaint said that two days after the arrest; an unidentified CHP officer read a police blotter over the local radio station, identifying Jackson by her name, age and residence and asserting that she had been arrested for driving under the influence of Oxycontin. After the radio broadcast, a press release by Jackson's daughter Julia Jackson, who is also her attorney, said the radio report was "especially shocking because they named a specific drug, one widely as- sociated with abuse, when no drug testing had been initiat:' ed and no drugs had been found in Mrs. Jackson's car or on her person." The report indicated the district attorney declined to prosecute the case after re- ceiving the evidence. I ,s open on MondayS. • /I Open Wed. - Mon.  .....

Emerson said she is work- ing with an organization "that is heavily lobbying Washington" to get more money for rural areas. Emerson blasted AT&T for not providing high-speed In- ternet in its rural service ar- eas, while it also tries to keep other telecoms from en- tering the market. "In these northern coun- ties alone, AT&T is basically taking what I call squatters' rights," Emerson said. "As far as they (AT&T) are con- cerned, they serve an area. Therefore they are not going to let anyone else come in and serve that 'territory. "You talk to the con- sumers ... and they are pissed. Because they are not getting the kind of connec- tivity that they feel they should, or that they can, or that they are willing to pay for," Emerson said,: "As far as I'm concerned, AT&T has abandoned its rural commu- nities," Plumas-Sierr a Telecom -- which is a who|lj owned subsidiary of Piumas-Sierra Rural Electric -- is trying to overcome the AT&T obsta- cle. "We've still got a little work to do, but we are doing it," Marshall said. "It's been fun to watch some of the in- cumbent carriers starting to bring their 'A game' and im- proving their system the mo- ment we say we are coming.
