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."

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