Feather River Bulletin Wednesday, Aug. 6, 2014 7A Mature marijuana plants flank a trail in the Feather River Canyon. According to Sheriff's Investigations Sgt. Steve Peay, this strain does not grow very tall, making the plants harder to find. The plants become mature and produce buds when they are just a couple feet tall. One of the garbage dumps found during the raid contains the remains of food and plant-growing material. A shelter at one of several camps found during the raid shows evidence that people were living at the grow site.

CONSTRUCTION (530) 283-2035 P.O. BOX ! 369 QUINCY, CA 95971 LIC. #453927 California Governor Brown has declared a drought State of Emergency on January 17, 2014, and called upon all Californians to do their part to reduce their water usage. The State Water Resources Control Board is now requiring all water suppliers to institute mandatory water conservation. A District our size must either restrict outdoor watering to two days per week OR institute other mandatory conservation measures. At this time, Quincy Community Services District has elected to institute other mandatory conservation measures with the hope that we will achieve sufficient reduction and not have to institute further restrictions. In 2012, Quincy CSD began our voluntary alternate watering days to begin conserving water. In accordance with the State requirements, effective immediately, the voluntary alternate watering days are mandatory. If the last number in your address is even (0, 2, 4, 6, 8), water only on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. If the last number is odd (1, 3, 5, 7, 9), water on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays. There is no watering on Mondays. The regulations adopted by the State Water Resources Board further: restrict the following activities: No Excessive Irrigation: Irrigating in a manner that causes or allows potable water to run off property onto sidewalks, gutters, streets, ditches, or storm drains is prohibited. • No Landscape Watering between Noon and 6 p.m. • No use of a hose to wash an automobile unless the hose is fitted with a shut-off nozzle. • No Washing down Hard or Paved Surfaces. Customers may not wash down sidewalks, walkways, driveways, parking lots, patios or other paved surfaces, except to alleviate immediate safety or sanitation hazards or to prepare paved surfaces for sealing. We appreciate your assistance and cooperation. Please call our office if you have any further questions. Thank you!
