Friends of Forestville Dam plan legal action

The Friends of the Forestville Dam member Christine Reid says the group intends to sue to impose an injunction against the county plan to do a slow draw-down of the millpond that has formed upstream from the levee. 

 


Agricultural runoff has led to large deposits of sediment that could potentially contaminate groundwater. The county park is a popular spot for fishing and recreation but the pollution puts that at risk. The draw-down is designed to last two years and is not guaranteed to work. It may need to be repeated every five to ten years. The Friends say years ago there was an item in the preliminary county budget to dredge and remove the sediment but it was stricken before the final draft was approved. The Friends want that original concept to be adhered to.
