D.    GENERAL BUSINESS

  1. Presentation by Dr. Chuck Hanson of Hanson Environmental, Inc.: Mr. Hanson summarized the monitoring he had performed on local creeks and stated that the focus of the surveys was to determine the existing habitat and potential improvements as related to the endangered Steelhead. Dr. Hanson reported that the current habitat conditions of the upper watershed are good and suggested that a minimum base flow be established in order to assure year-round stream flow necessary for Steelhead survival. District storage capacity would have to be increased in order to accomplish this goal. The Board and members of the public discussed various aspects of habitat restoration program implementation including costs incurred, possible funding, rate adjustments to accommodate the program, storage capacity issues, seasonal water use, historical creek habitation, etc. Dr. Hanson will continue to collect data and draft documents in order to move forward with the program. A water management meeting to continue discussion was scheduled for October 13th.
