DWP, Great Basin at odd over Owens Lake dust work

February 22, 2012

The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power is saying it has fulfilled its legal obligation to mitigate impacts of dust blowing off Owens Lake.
In a presentation to Great Basin last week, the LADWP said that it is not solely responsible for dust blowing off the lake and that dust was an issue in the Owens Valley long before the Southern California utility began exporting water from the area.
In short, the LADWP said it believes it has done all it is required to on the lake.
Great Basin Air Pollution Control District Director Ted Schade said the LADWP’s position is “nonsense.”

RC Club back on track with new home

February 22, 2012

Owensville RC Club members and their scaled-down dirt-track race cars have a new, permanent home.
The club had been set up temporarily in an area of the Tri-County Fairgrounds designated for 4-H animals while the members worked on approval from the City of Bishop for a spot at the park. After objections were filed by residents near the park, the club withdrew its application and Jim Tatum, CEO of the Tri-County Fairgrounds stepped up with a solution: just under an acre of land on the north end of the fairgrounds, facing North Sierra Highway near the Bishop Veterinary Hospital.
