Letter of Opposition to the Lake Oroville Spillway Reconstruction Charges - Butte County has a State Water Project contract with the California Department of Water Resources for 27,500 acre-feet of Table A water. nbsp; Butte County has contracts with the California Water Service Company Oroville and Del Oro Water Company to provide 3,500 acre-feet to support local water demands. The remainder of Butte County rsquo;s Table A allocation is leased to other State Water Project Contractors including Palmdale and Westside districts. As part of the State Water Project contract, the Department of Water Resources annually charges Butte County for their proportional cost of operating and maintaining the State Water Project. The County passes this cost along to the water purveyors who have contracts with Butte County. Most of the costs associated with the Lake Oroville Spillway Incident will be paid by the State Water Project contractors, including Butte County. The Lake Oroville Spillway Incident caused widespread economic, environmental, and societal damage. The City of Oroville and Butte County have not been compensated for the damage. Butte County received a notice from the Department of Water Resources that the initial costs from the Lake Oroville Spillway Incident will be part of the 2019 bill. This would mean that the most impacted people would be responsible for paying for the incident. The Department of Water and Resource Conservation recommends the Board of Supervisors protest any charges related to the Lake Oroville Spillway Incident.

Lassen Motor Vehicle Use Map Update (MVUM) Project Comment Letter - The Travel Management Rule of 2005 (Title 36, Code of Federal Regulations, section 212.50) closed many forest roadways to off-highway vehicle (OHV) travel, and greatly reduced the amount of area that could be traveled by the public. This rule also required the designation of forest roads for specific uses and required that those uses be published on a map available to the public. Lassen National Forest (LNF) is initiating scoping for the Lassen MVUM Project (Project). nbsp; The Project has been proposed to enhance and diversify OHV recreation opportunities, increase the mileage and connectivity of existing roads available to OHV, provide for public safety, and update the Lassen MVUM. LNF analyzed 577 miles of roads for consideration to either: 1) allow mixed use on Maintenance Level 3 (ML3) roads; or 2) reduce the roads to Maintenance Level 2 roads that are designated for OHV and high clearance vehicle use. The counties of Butte, Tehama, Plumas, Lassen, and Shasta have participated in a coordinated stakeholder effort since 2008 to improve the MVUM, allowing for OHV travel on non-surfaced ML3 roads within LNF, pointing out that the counties all allow OHV travel on non-surfaced roads adjacent to and connecting with the LNF ML3 roads. The Butte County Federal/State Land Use Coordinating Committee met on March 12, 2019, and recommends the Board of Supervisors approve a letter supporting the proposed plan.
