Also you can click on the "Save Our Water" picture above to see more about the statewide drought emergency effort and how you can help. On Friday, January 17, Governor  Brown declared a statewide State of Emergency stating: "“We can’t make it rain, but we can be much better prepared for the terrible consequences that California’s drought now threatens, including dramatically less water for our farms and communities and increased fires in both urban and rural areas."

And last but not least, an outdoor fire Burn Ban is in effect in the Brooktrails Township and Mendocino County. And the Mendocino County Air Quality Management District is requesting that County residents limit fireplace and wood stove use whenever possible and burn wood only when necessary for comfort.

What You Need to Know about the Willits Wastewater Treatment Plant Dispute:
An Update as of June 2014

    The Brooktrails Township and the City of Willits, since 2005, have been involved in a dispute over the allocation of costs for the new Wastewater Treatment Plant and, since 1997, over the allocation of operating costs for the treatment plant. The City of Willits is demanding that Brooktrails Township Community Services District ratepayers pay to treat sewage produced by City ratepayers.

    The dispute involves $2,000,000+ in project costs for the new Wastewater Treatment Plant and $150+ per Brooktrails residence in operating costs over the past eight years. To make matters worse, after subtracting the Township's exclusive flow capacity rights the new Wastewater Treatment Plant capacity is not large enough to handle sewage flows from the City and the new Wastewater Treatment Plan may be discharging millions of gallons of wastewater annually into the Little Lake Valley groundwater table and polluted water into the creek.

    Every Brooktrails Township ratepayer should become informed about this dispute.
