Larry has overseen our system for 38 years and been a good friend to the farmers in the Valley while worked tirelessly to ensure the delivery of water needed to grow our crops.
Larry is moving to Idaho to be with his family, but he promises to stay in touch and return for a celebration in the not too distant future.
We owe a big debt of gratitude to Larry for his contribution to Zone Water and the friendship we have enjoyed.
On September 25, 2019, the Fox Canyon Groundwater Management Agency’s (FCGMA) Board of Directors voted to increase groundwater pumping fees from $12.50 per acre-foot to $17 per acre-foot. The fee is retroactive beginning on August 1, 2019. The increased pump fee is reflected on your September 30th invoice as follows:
· Retroactive FCGMA increase for August = Acre-ft delivered in Aug. x $ 4.50 per acre-ft ($17-$12.50 = $4.50)
· FCGMA fee increase for September = Acre-ft delivered in Sep. x $17 per acre-ft.
Subsequent invoices will reflect the new FCGMA pumping fees.
To voice your concerns regarding this fee increase, please contact the FCGMA Director, Jeff Pratt at 805-654-2073 or at email@example.com.
The FCGMA Board also approved a pumping fee increase to $20 per acre-foot beginning August 1, 2020.
Flowmeter photographs are now required to be included with Semi-Annual Groundwater Extraction Statements. Notifications have yet to be sent to Agricultural operators with information about how to take and submit photos of flowmeters. Information will also be included with the statements. The photos should be taken when reading the flowmeter totalizer at the end of the statement period (July 31 and December 31 for Agriculture). If you have questions about the new photo requirements, please contact Kathy Jones at 805.645.1372 or firstname.lastname@example.org
