   These are the stories we are working on for this week's newspaper:
  • Image makeover needed: In the soon-to-be-released grand jury report, the jurors said the county’s Alcohol and Drug and Mental Health departments are suffering from a poor public image.
  • Help at the jail: The Board of Supervisors approved the sheriff’s request to hire four corrections officers, but not before reminding him the county is facing a $3 million budget problem.
  • Water disaster?: The state has already enacted emergency conservation measures. The county is thinking about declaring a local disaster as well.

State inspects Greenville sewer

State water quality control agents Tuesday, Sept. 21, toured the Greenville sewer ponds, where a passerby detected a leak into Wolf Creek in July.

Agents had not issued their report or an expected notice of violation as of press time. Results of Wolf Creek testing above and below the leak are expected either Friday, Sept. 17, or Monday, Sept. 20, according to Greg Cash of the water quality control boards.

Meanwhile, health concerns were allayed somewhat when Indian Valley Medical Clinic manager John Evans said there had been no spike or significant change in the number of episodes of stomach disorders this summer.

Exposure to fecal contaminated water could cause a number of illnesses, according to nurse Amanda Higgins of the Plumas County Health Agency, some serious, and most of which include digestive upsets, like diarrhea, nausea, cramps and vomiting.
