Gia Martynn Special to Feather Publishing As the hope for a wet E1 Nifio winter begins to wane, the seriousness of the drought continuing into 2015 is daunting. Most in Plumas County have fared OK through the dry summer, although there are those who have not. Many local agricultural producers have been hit hard by the drought, either unable to irrigate simply because the creeks are just too low or because state restrictions either limit or completely prohibit them from taking any water from local streams. Many have turned to drilling more wells and pumping groundwater to meet water demands; however; groundwater management has become a hot topic across the state. Taken from an article published in The Washington Post a few weeks ago, a recent study by UC Davis researchers warned that some of the state's aquifers could soon be depleted if pumping continues at current rates, which have helped farmers survive this year. However, one of the authors, Richard Howitt, a professor emeritus of resource economics, said, "A well-managed basin is used like a reserve bank account. We're acting like the super rich who have so much money they don't need to balance their checkbook." The study estimated that 5.1 million acre-feet of water will be pulled from the state's underground reserves this year, a volume roughly equivalent to the storage capacity of Lake Shasta, the state's biggest reservoir and third-largest lake after Lake Tahoe and the Salton Sea. So what can we do? Last week we shared what Feather River College is doing to reduce its water consumption. Plumas County Facility Services has cut back water use by reducing the sprinkling time 50 percent on the courthouse, Rural Serv" le Purse cam Plumas Rural Services' Domestic Violence Services program is launching a Purple Purse campaign, part of a national fundraiser organized by The Allstate Foundation to raise awareness of financial abuse and its role in domestic violence. Plumas County was one of 140 locations selected nationally to participate in this effort to raise funds for domestic violence programs and community awareness around this issue. The Purple Purse campaign launched yesterday, Sept. 2, and will run through Oct. 3. The Purple Purse campaign is a national challenge. PRS will be competing with other providers of domestic violence services throughout the country for periodic challenges to earn additional funds from The Allstate Foundation.

Dony Sawchuck, Plumas County facilities and airports director, also noted that most departments are no longer washing vehicles. As individuals and homeowners there are lots of small things we can do that can add up to significant water savings. For example, when running a bath, plug the bathtub before turning on the water and adjust the temperature as the tub fills. Or better yet, recycle indoor water outdoors: put a bucket in your shower and use it to water plants.
