Latest News


NOVEMBER 2017. No need to explain, Mother Nature has made it clear, fall has arrived. As you are aware the lake has been holding steady for some time now, since around the 28th of August. I was at the lake and started seeing a level change on 13 October 2017. PG&E has also started their rounds of the leased properties marking trees that need to be removed. Some marked trees for removal are assigned to the lease holder and some to PG&E. You should receive a letter if you are responsible for tree removal. Please know your rights and if you think they may have been erroneously assigned, then speak up. There is a good reference document that defines the Utilities responsibilities for powerline safety, “Power Line Fire Prevention Field Guide”.
