Rehab project fueled by volunteer spirit

January 24, 2012

Rehabilitation at Buckley Ponds east of Bishop is nearing completion thanks to the work put in by dozens of volunteers.
Organizers Dick Noles and Dale Comontofski said the goal of the Buckley Ponds project is to eliminate years’ worth of tule growth to provide a healthier fish and water fowl habitat.
Buckley Ponds is a group of bodies of water, and the volunteers are tackling one at a time.
Work on the restoration project began with Pond No. 3 back in December when the Los Angeles of Water and Power diverted water from the ponds, allowing crews to burn the existing tule growth.
