The two-part public meeting hosted by Plumas County District 3 Supervisor Sherrie Thrall on Wednesday, Feb. 11, drew a crowd so large that attendees not only filled chairs and lined the walls around the room but jammed the lobby entrance of the Chester Memorial Hall as well.

Most of the attendees were opposed to the proposed installation of thermal curtains on Lake Almanor and Butt Lake as well as the drawdown of any cold water from Lake Almanor.

The meeting was held in two parts, with Pacific Gas and Electric Co.’s director of hydro licensing-power generation, Alvin Thoma, speaking first about PG&E’s relicensing of the Upper North Fork Feather River Project 2105. Add a comment
