State water quota not met

Del Norte falling short of conservation mandate 

Even as torrential rains threaten to flood roads and wash away hillsides this week, people should not lose sight of cutting back their water consumption, Crescent City officials say. 

As of November, the municipal water supplier, which pumps fresh water into two-thirds of Del Norte County’s homes, was not meeting its state-mandated mark of a cumulative 16 percent reduction.

Work crews strung caution tape in front of the cliff across the street from Brother Jonathan Park on Friday to keep storm watchers from standing on the edge, which is beginning to show signs of slipping, Public Works Director Eric Wier said.

“We have seen some erosion and slippage along the bluff there. We want to keep people back during storms until we can do a further evaluation,” he said.

Other crews, cloaked in bright-yellow rain gear, assessed storm drains and cleared sticks and leaves and other debris as a hard rain continued to fall.

Consumption-based sewer billing tied to winter water use average

Editor’s note: Two stories published Tuesday regarding a new sewer rate proposal by Crescent City contained several errors. The following information corrects those errors and serves as a clarification:

The City Council introduced an ordinance Monday that, if adopted, will change the sewer utility to a consumption-based billing structure for residential customers, and change how residential customers are charged. Commercial customers have always been on a consumption-based structure.

Under the current flat-rate billing structure, every residential rate-payer pays the same amount. A person using 250 cubic feet of water and a person using 2,500 cubic feet pay the same amount, according to Public Works Director Eric Wier.
