The above link is to a web page that will provide information regarding Lassen County’s efforts to implement the Groundwater Management Plan (GMP) adopted by the Board in 2007. Specifically, Lassen County is working to develop Basin Management Objectives (BMOs) for 12 basins determined to be a priority by the GMP. Establishing BMOs creates a monitoring based approach to meeting GMP objectives by providing a management strategy to avoid overdraft and other negative groundwater impacts. The goal of the Lassen BMO project is to organize, plan, and develop BMOs in 12 management areas within Lassen County.
The site provides specific information about the program, provides links to documents, lists upcoming meetings, provides graphics and lists contact information for the project managers.
Lassen County was awarded $250,000 by the California Department of Water Resources for the project. The Board then approved a contract with Brown and Caldwell for $238,000 to provide the necessary consulting services. The remaining funds are paid to Lassen County for administration of the grant. There is no cost share associated with the grant. As part of the contract Brown and Caldwell is hosting the project website. (Posted 7/19/11)
