Sonoma County to hold drought town hall
Sonoma County Supervisor Lynda Hopkins will host a virtual town on local efforts to tackle the drought on Thursday, June 3.
The 6 p.m. town hall will focus on the drought and impacts on the Russian River and community.
Speakers will include representatives from Sonoma Water, State Regional Water Quality Control Board, Sonoma County Regional Parks and Sonoma County Environmental Health.
Participants will also discuss Sonoma Water’s petition to lower minimum in-stream flows in the Russian River to preserve water in Lake Sonoma. Sonoma Water is also asking for state approval to reduce pumping of Russian River water by 20%.
