MENDOCINO Co., 8/16/19 — The Eel River Recovery Project will be holding a free water rights workshop in Laytonville on August 23, organized by the Eel River Recovery Project and the Ten Mile Creek Watershed Council.
Dr. Hollie Hall of Compliant Farms will be giving advice about water rights, permitting, and conservation. There will also be water storage assessments available. The workshop is free and some grant funding may be available to assist with some storage for water conservation and “water use compliance services” for residents of the Ten Mile Creek watershed.
Here’s the full announcement:
The public is invited to a meeting at the Eel River Restoration Project’s office in the Bio Engineering building in Laytonville on August 23 from 4-6. The California State Coastal Conservancy acquired Proposition 1 funding for the Eel River Recovery Project to render free technical assistance to Tenmile Creek land owners for the purposes of conservation and restoration.
Residents of the Ten Mile Creek watershed will be able to receive technical advice on water rights and water permitting, by water expert Hollie Hall, Ph.D.
Dr. Hall is an authority on water rights and She will provide advice on water rights, permitting and conservation. Hollie can help land owners develop water conservation plans with the intent of meeting regulatory requirements, but that are also environmentally sound so in aggregate they help Tenmile Creek recover. Water storage will be assessed, and if there is a need for additional storage for conservation purposes, then grant funds will be pursued for that purpose.
We hope to see you at this educational and informative event, brought to you by the Eel River Restoration Project and the Ten Mile Creek Watershed Council.
