Tuolumne Community’s Only Source Of Water May Go Dry By Summer’s End

The Obama/Brown policies of giving water to fish not people is going to cause the quaint town of Twain Harte (named about Mark Twain and Bret Harte, writers of the 19th Century) financial collapse. This is a town of 1600. Congressman McClintock noted recently that enough water is used to protect salmon that could provide water for 500,000 people for a year! But, Jerry and Barack put fish first.

This is the first town to go under due to water. Most major growers in the Central Valley have already announced they will not plant this season—tens of thousands of people will lose their jobs or not get hired. We have a drought, but the lack of water is due to government policy.

Tuolumne Community’s Only Source Of Water May Go Dry By Summer’s End

By Rich Ibarra, Capitol Public Radio, 5/12/14

People in Twain Harte in Tuolumne County are trying to cut their water use by 50 percent. The town’s only source of water may go dry before the end of summer.

Twain Harte is home to 1,600 people who depend on Lyons Reservoir for their water.

The reservoir is full now but runoff from the snow melt is expected to end May 25th, that’s 6 weeks ahead of normal and after that the town could be short of water.

Tom Trott heads Twain Hart Community Services District and says people need to cut water use by 50 percent but so far usage is only down 32 percent.

“Shorter showers, putting the bucket under the faucet while the water is heating up and using that to flush toilets and water plant,” says Trott. “We have businesses that have cut out buffets because they produce more dishes. People using disposable dishes and cups and things like that.”

Twain Harte’s economy relies on tourism and its summertime population will double with tourists renting vacation cabins.

Trott says it will be difficult to tell tourists they must take shorter showers.

But without drastic cutbacks, the mountain community could find itself without water this summer.

    It not the fish that is the issue. It is the fact that the majority of people life in a dry arid climate. If they stopped sending water south we wouldn’t have any problems. The dems believe that global warming will raise the sea levels then get with building treatment plants down south. Who cares how much they have to pay for clean water. They should have thought about that before issuing all those building permits. California should be two states, and southern California needs to stop ruining every environment that they steal water from. Brown is a liar and should be convicted of for not following a court order. He steals private property in the name of a train and two tunnels. CA has Brown rot.
