EBMUD schedules another meeting March 30 at San Andreas to discuss Pardee expansion plan at request of Calaveras County Supervisors

March 24, 2009 -- EBMUD has scheduled another foothill public hearing on its Pardee water plan for Monday, March 30, 6:30pm at the San Andreas Town Hall.

One hundred fortyfive people turned out in force to oppose EBMUD's proposed expansion of Pardee Reservoir. at the first meeting. The crowd was packed into the room and stood outside the Amador Water Agency chamber -- folks from all walks of life and political persuasions. The two EBMUD directors present received two strong messages: We love our river, and we will fight for it.

Amador and Calaveras County supervisors complained about the inadequate facilities, and many people complained about not having adequate notice of the meeting. Calaveras Supervisor Steve Wilensky, who spoke at the Sutter Creek meeting, explicitly asked EBMUD to hold a meeting in Calaveras County.

Foothill residents were upset that they were not notified earlier in the process (which has been going on for 2 1/4 years so far). A huge amount of local opposition exists to the proposed Pardee expansion.

The Foothill Conservancy's position on the EBMUD Pardee expansion plan may be found on their website.
