Senator Gaines Comments On California’s Massive Snowpack

Sacramento, CA...Senator Ted Gaines (R-El Dorado) reacted to the results of California snow survey, a measurement of the water content of California’s snowpack. This monthly survey is used to determine the amount of runoff the state can expect throughout the spring and summer. Typically, melting snow provides roughly 30-percent of California’s water supply.



“This snow survey proves that California’s stormy January was a drought-buster. The state is buried under a thick blanket of snow that will keep our reservoirs full all through the summer and make this a better year for recreation, agriculture, and for people who have had to cut back on personal water use.

“But all this water also highlights that staggering lack of foresight and political will on the part of politicians who have neglected to build enough water storage to keep up with our growing population. The Sacramento River was recently surging with enough water every day to supply the needs of 150,000 families for an entire year. But instead of capturing that water in reservoirs it was being diverted into open fields or running out into the sea.

“It won’t matter how much rain and snow we get if we don’t have a way to store it and move it around the state. This extraordinary winter is a gift but we aren’t ready to accept it. I’m tired of delays. I want to see concrete and steel in the ground, workers and bulldozers in action so the next time Mother Nature opens up, California can capture the water it needs.”

Senator Ted Gaines represents the 1st Senate District, which includes all or parts of Alpine, El Dorado, Lassen, Modoc, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, Sacramento, Shasta, Sierra and Siskiyou counties.

New Reservoirs

To state the obvious, new reservoirs and their related infrastructure costs money. I for one would accept a tax increase for such a project and any projects related to upgrading our current reservoir system.

Water storage-yes
Posted on: 2017-02-04 16:22:27   By: Anonymous
 
Water storage, yes. Perhaps new taxes to do so. But not under the current governor and legislative climate in the state. And, not without serious discussion about aquifer depletion due to the overplanting of Almonds in the central valley.And, not without the discussion regarding the negative impact on non-commercial property owner wells. It would all be squandered and missed managed.

      No, because they are hard at work, supporting their families and entitled off jacks like you. You know, paying taxes, winning elections because they're winners, not losers like you ! Get your EBT card, and run the quickie mart before it's too late. Oh, and in 2020, register and vote.y

That Valley.
Posted on: 2017-02-04 20:16:24   By: Anonymous
 
In the course of this valley, the river's elevation drops from above 5,000 m (16,000 ft) to less than 1,000 m (3,300 ft). The headwaters of the Yangtze are situated at an elevation of about 4,900 m (16,100 ft). In its descent to sea level, the river falls to an altitude of 305 m (1,001 ft) at Yibin, Sichuan, the head of navigation for riverboats, and to 192 m (630 ft) at Chongqing (Chungking). Between Chongqing and Yichang (I-ch'ang), at an altitude of 40 m (130 ft) and a distance of about 320 km (200 mi), it passes through the spectacular Yangtze Gorges, which are noted for their natural beauty but are dangerous to shipping.
