Blackrock wellfield site of field trip

June 9, 2011

Residents are being offered an up-close and personal view this weekend of what one group is calling irresponsible land management practices.
Members of the California Native Plant Society will be leading a field trip in the Eight-Mile Ranch and Blackrock Springs area between Independence and Big Pine this weekend to visit a “degraded alkali meadow habitat.”
The degradation, according to the Bristlecone Chapter of the CNPS, is the direct result of too much groundwater pumping on the part of the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power and complicity on the part of the County of Inyo.
