Gov. Jerry Brown issued a drought emergency proclamation for the state Jan. 17, but how that will impact Plumas County remains to be seen.
“I’m not sure of all the impacts to the upper watershed, but it certainly bears watching,” said Jerry Sipe, the county’s office of emergency services director, in a written update to the Board of Supervisors.
Sipe also included a long-range weather forecast, which predicts below-normal precipitation for California and Northern Nevada through April.
“We’re facing perhaps the worst drought California has ever seen since records began being kept about 100 years ago,” Brown said in declaring the emergency.
The governor called for a voluntary “20 percent conservation of our water use” by the state’s residents in both urban and rural areas, but mentioned the possibility of mandatory conservation.
